The 1988 European Cup Final was a football match played between PSV of the Netherlands and Benfica of Portugal to decide the champion of the 1987-88 European Cup. 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 concluded in 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 members of Guus Hiddink's PSV side were also part of the Dutch team that went on to win UEFA Euro 1988 in West Germany that summer.[1]
