The 1988 European Cup Final was a football match played between PSV Eindhoven of the Netherlands and Benfica of Portugal. PSV won 6–5 on penalties after a goalless draw after extra time. The match was played at Neckarstadion, Stuttgart, on 25 May 1988. According to PSV-player Berry van Aerle, it was not a particularly good match, with both teams very cautious. However, it was exciting until the end and a tense penalty shoot-out.[1]

For PSV, this win secured a Treble of the Dutch Cup, the Dutch Championship and the European Cup. Five of the PSV team were part of the Dutch team that went on to win UEFA Euro 1988 in Germany that summer.[1]
