Between 1994 to 1996, Ajax completed an unbeaten run of 52 domestic matches + 19 UEFA Champions League matches, while the 1995 year is considered as the peak of that. The 1995 Ajax team remained unbeaten for a full year, in Europe and in domestic league, a run of 48 matches overall. The feat of winning, simultaneously, both champions league and domestic league without a single defeat, is an historical achievement, unmatched by any other team.
