Liverpool played a monumental final against AC Milan at the Ataturk stadium in Turkey on 25 May, 2005.
Milan were the favourites before the match and took the lead within the first minute thanks to captain Paolo Maldini. Milan striker Hernán Crespo added two more goals before half-time to take to scoreline to 3–0.
In the second half Liverpool launched a comeback and scored three goals in a dramatic six-minute spell to level the scores at 3–3, with goals from Steven Gerrard, Vladimír Šmicer and Xabi Alonso. The scores remained the same during extra time, and a penalty shoot-out was needed to decide the champions.
The stood at 3–2 to Liverpool when Andriy Shevchenko's penalty was saved by Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek. Thus Liverpool won their fifth European Cup, were awarded a permanent trophy and claimed a multiple-winner badge.
Liverpool's comeback that day became known as the ‘Miracle of Istanbul’. The match is regarded as one of the greatest finals in the history of the tournament.
