In 1995 Dutch twins Frank and Ronald de Boer starred in Ajax‘s Champions League victory against AC Milan in Vienna. An 85th minute goal by substitute Patrick Kluivert decided the final. This was Ajax’s fourth victory in the tournament. Louis van Gaal managed Ajax and Fabio Capello Milan. The Ajax team also included United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar, Frank Rijkaard, Clarence Seedorf, Edgar Davids and Marc Overmars. Milan had nine Italians and Ajax nine Dutch players in their line-ups.
What odds on the da Silvas repeating the de Boers at Wembley in May?
