Attendance 69,693

The 1984 European Cup Final took place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on May 30, 1984. The match was between Liverpool F.C. and A.S. Roma, with the stadium actually being Roma's home stadium and the site of Liverpool's first European Cup triumph. Liverpool won 4–2 in Penalty Shootout, after the match was drawn 1–1 after extra-time. This was Liverpool's fourth European Cup win, becoming only the second team to win 4 European Cups (This was later surpassed by A.C. Milan when they won their fifth trophy in 1994). The victory gave Liverpool three trophies with the League Championship and the League Cup in Joe Fagan's first year in charge after replacing Bob Paisley the summer before. The final is particularly famous amongst Liverpool fans due to Bruce Grobbelaar's spaghetti legs antics during the shootout (Jerzy Dudek recreated this in the 2005).
