Vicenza Calcio is an Italian football club based in Vicenza, Veneto. The club was formed in 1902 and has spent much of its history outside the top flight, though the club spent the entire 1960s and a large part of the 1990s in Serie A. The club's only major honour is the Coppa Italia in 1997, and they competed in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup the following season, reaching the semi-finals.

It was Chelsea who denied the Venetian side a place in the final, but it was far from a straightforward victory. Leading 1-0 after the first leg, Vicenza appeared to have one foot in the final after taking a first half lead at Stamford Bridge in the second leg, scoring a crucial away goal that required Chelsea to score three times without reply to go through. Gustavo Poyet, starting his first game for six months following injury, got Chelsea back in the tie three minutes later, and Gianfranco Zola scored a rare header in the second half to leave Chelsea needing one goal to progress to the final. Mark Hughes provided the crucial goal 15 minutes from time, the Welshman chasing his own flick-on from a long ball into the area before striking the ball with his left foot across the Vicenza goalkeeper and into the far corner. Chelsea held on to reach their second European final.
