Season[edit]

Due to the European achievement in 1963–64 season, Inter also debuted in the Intercontinental Cup facing off with Independiente. After two legs, the aggregate score resulted in a draw; the cup was awarded by a tie-breaker, in which Inter won 1–0 at extra time.

In Serie A Inter suffered a 3–0 loss in the Derby della Madonnina.[1] In late January, there were two draws in row and an uprising defeat, by Foggia in matchday 19.[1] So, over the mid of season, Milan had 7 points over Inter with 15 games to play.[1] The following months saw a historical comeback from the side, that won 13 times and drew twice: 28 points were earned this way, resulting in first place.[1] Mazzola had a central role in team play, scoring 17 goals to be the league's top-scorer.[1]

On May 27, a year exactly from the previous win, Inter retained the European title by beating Benfica at the San Siro: Jair was the scorer.
