The 1985 Intercontinental Cup was a football match played on December 8, 1985, between Juventus, winners of the 1984–85 European Cup, and Argentinos Juniors, winners of the 1985 Copa Libertadores. Recognised as the best edition in the history of the tournament for technical and agonistic level, the match was played at the National Stadium in Tokyo. It was Juventus' second appearance into the competition, after replacing Ajax Amsterdam in 1973.
After their triumph in the competition, Juventus became the first football team ever—remain the only one at present—to have won all official continental competitions and the world title. Also, Italian defenders Gaetano Scirea and Antonio Cabrini became the first European footballers to have won all international club competitions and Giovanni Trapattoni, the first European manager in association football history to do so.
