The 1973 European Cup Final was a football match held at the Red Star Stadium, Belgrade, on 30 May 1973, in which Ajax of the Netherlands defeated Juventus of Italy 1–0. A single goal from Johnny Rep four minutes into the match was enough for Ajax to claim their third consecutive European Cup. This victory meant that Ajax had earned the privilege of keeping the trophy permanently. Juventus, however, got revenge 23 years later beating Ajax in the 1996 final in Rome.
