1989–90 A.C. Milan season


A.C. Milan won their second consecutive European Cup, thanks to a final victory over Benfica. The Dutch trio of Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Frank Rijkaard was now a firmly established unit, but their efforts were not quite enough to defeat Napoli in the title chase.

Note: The match was scheduled for 17 December 1989, but moved because of Milan's involvement in the 1989 Intercontinental Cup. The first date originally chosen for the recovery was 3 January 1990 but the game was abandoned after 28 minutes due to heavy fog, while the score was still 0–0 and subsequently replayed.
