The 1995 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup Final was a football match on 10 May 1995 contested between cup holders Arsenal of England and Real Zaragoza of Spain. The final was held at Parc des Princes in Paris. It was the final match of the 1994–95 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and the 35th UEFA Cup Winners' Cup Final. Real Zaragoza won the match 2–1 after extra time, preventing Arsenal from retaining the trophy that they had won in 1994.

The first half was goalless. In the second half, Real Zaragoza's Juan Esnáider opened the scoring, before John Hartson scored Arsenal's equaliser. The game went into extra time and looked to be heading to a penalty shoot-out. However, with seconds remaining, former Tottenham midfielder, Nayim, scored a spectacular last-minute goal with a 40-yard lob over Arsenal goalkeeper, David Seaman, winning the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup for Real Zaragoza.[2]
