The Toffees versus The Bavarians


On This Day In 1985, Everton humbled Bayern Munich 3-1 in the semi-final second leg of the European Cup Winners Cup(formerly known as the UEFA Cup and later the Europa League) at Goodison Park. The win sent the Toffees who had earlier played out a 0-0 draw with the Bavarians at Allianz Arena to the final where they proceeded to beat Rapid Wien 3-1 for their first and only piece of European silverware. This would be the last time Everton participated in European competition until the club competed in this tournament, once again following its FA Cup win in 1995.
