Milan have lifted the Champions League

May 23 is a date where Milan earned the amount of revenge in the Champions League against Liverpool and Ayrton Senna continued his royal Monaco run.

On this day 13 years ago against a known opponent, Rossonari became the champion of Europe for the seventh time.

It was also a significant date for the Army to make history on the Monaco Street Circuit, a track that no one has been able to celebrate in Formula One.

Look back at the sports archives from this day over the years.

1981 – Benitez becomes the youngest three-time world champion

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican boxers of all time, Wilfred Benitez of American descent already won the WBA light-welterweight strap from 17-year-old Antonio Cervantes when he was the player’s youngest world champion.

After defeating Carlos Polomino at the age of less than three, he became the WBC World Welterweight Champion.

On May 23, 1981, in Las Vegas, the brilliant Benitez again relegated WBC World Little Middleweight Champion Maurice Hope.

Benitez, still just 22 years old, knocked out Hope with an overhand right to become the youngest three-time world champion in history.

Benitez became the first person in 43 years to win a belt in three categories and was inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame in 1996.

1993 – The army makes history in Monaco

The legendary army has made Monaco as efficient as any other driver ever

In 1993, the Brazilian was at the top of the podium for a great fifth year – no F1 driver has won so many in a single track – and for the sixth time overall, which saw him clear Monaco’s winning record. Graham Hill

There was some luck on this special occasion. Pole-sitter Alain Prost was fielded to start the jump and had to fight the track through the field where it was infamous to pass, while Michael Schumacher was clear before retiring due to hydraulic problems.

Sadly, the army could not go for the sixth time in a row due to the tragic death of San Marino Grand Prix in 1994.

2007 – Inzaghi helps Milan defeat the Istanbul monsters

Two years ago, Milan faced a final collapse in the Champions League as Liverpool struggled to win in a penalty shootout from Istanbul’s 3-0 deficit.

There was no need for a Greek tragedy for Athens’ Rasoniri due to his revenge on Carlo Allensolti at the showpiece of the 200th European Premier League.

Filippo Inzaghi scored again after a half-time stroke and eight minutes from the end as Rafael Benitez moved away from the Reds.

Dark Quiet scored at the last minute of normal time to give Liverpool hope, but Milan should not have been denied the seventh European crown.
