The 2005 UEFA Champions League Final was the final match of the 2004–05 UEFA Champions League, Europe’s primary club football competition. The showpiece event was contested between Liverpool of England and Milan of Italy at the Atatürk Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey on 25 May 2005. Liverpool, who had won the competition four times, were appearing in their sixth final, and their first since 1985. Milan, who had won the competition six times, were appearing in their second final in three years and tenth overall.
Each club needed to progress through the group stage and knockout rounds to reach the final, playing 12 matches in total. Liverpool finished second in their group behind 2004 runners-up AS Monaco and subsequently beat Bayer Leverkusen, Juventus and Chelsea to progress to the final. Milan won their group ahead of Barcelona and faced Manchester United, Internazionale and PSV Eindhoven before reaching the final.
Milan were regarded as favourites before the match and took the lead within the first minute through captain Paolo Maldini. Milan striker Hernán Crespo added two more goals before half-time to make it 3–0. In the second half Liverpool launched a comeback and scored three goals in a dramatic six-minute spell to level the scores at 3–3, with goals from Steven Gerrard, Vladimír Šmicer and Xabi Alonso. The scores remained the same during extra time, and a penalty shoot-out was required to decide the champions. The score was 3–2 to Liverpool when Andriy Shevchenko’s penalty was saved by Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek. Thus Liverpool won their fifth European Cup, were awarded the trophy permanently, and claimed a multiple-winner badge. Liverpool’s comeback gave rise to the final being known as the Miracle of Istanbul, and is regarded as one of the finest moments of the club’s history.

Wtf is wrong with Americans..habe they never heard of cities outside of yankland..his pronunciation of city names is hilarious.
Why couldn't you have found an English version of this game
Stop watching footy, zero clue of whats going on there!! Offensive
No offence to the guy cause he seens nice (Never watched him before), but he obviously dosent get the inportantce of this game, as a Liverpool fan watching him react to this match you can see that he dosent seem to see what happennd on liverpools side… like for a reaction channel i would of expected him to react a little more to this piece of world class football put on by an amzing team back i 2005…
Like i said, no offence
This guy has no idea what's happening on the pitch.
its the greatest comeback in history. the match was over before the half. And yet history was made in just 10 min
Didi Hamann score his pen with a broken foot
Reaction videos are the cancer of Youtube
The 2005 final and what Liverpool did is the best final I've ever seen. As a man city fan I can only hope we win the champions league soon
dudek the best
It’s one of the best comeback ever in cup final.
React to steven gerrard-the story
the best final ever in the biggest stage ( not counting world cup)
yanks just don't get it – this is the greatest comeback in football, maybe sporting history. A miracle, that didn't happen before and will probably never happen again. One of the best nights of my life.
Stick to yanky 'football' leave the real football to the rest of us thanks
bro please react to UCL finals juventus vs real madrid
You've chosen the worst quality video to watch. The sound is awful, it's not in English, so you won't understand the significance in the commentary, and there are probably a lot more videos online of this match, because it really is one of the best in history.
watch final 2007 😉
the referee denied a shevchenko regular goal in first half 4 a 0 … penalty gift
