Over 38,000 were on hand when European champions AC Milan visited Highbury on 1 February 1995 to contest the UEFA Super Cup with Arsenal FC.

Milan had produced one of the most memorable European Champion Clubs' Cup final performances the previous May with their 4-0 rout of FC Barcelona and with Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Demetrio Albertini and Dejan Savićević in the side boasted a devastating mix of steel and flair.

Arsenal would discover just how tough Milan's rearguard could be to break down, drawing the first leg in London 0-0 before falling to a 2-0 defeat in Milan the following week.

Arsenal had defeated Parma FC 1-0 in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup to lift their first European trophy in 24 years, but their hopes of clinching another were dashed shortly before half-time when Zvonimir Boban put the Italian side ahead on 41 minutes.

Daniele Massaro, scorer of two goals in the final rout of Barcelona, added the second on 67 minutes, and there was no way back for Arsenal as Milan clinched their third UEFA Super Cup in six years.
