Super Pippo's incredible 70 European goals are behind just Real Madrid legend Raul on the all-time European scoring charts.
Could it be anything else?
The 2005 Champions League final remains a bitter memory for all Milanisti as the club's second half collapse against Liverpool is the prime example for the old adage, "It's not over until it's over."
Two years after that dark day in Istanbul, Milan found itself in the finals once again, keen to get revenge over the same Liverpool side.
Inzaghi was picked to lead the line for a Milan side that featured some of the biggest names in the club's recent history, including Kaka, Andrea Pirlo, Massimo Ambrosini, Gennaro Gattuso, Clarence Seedorf, Alessandro Nesta, Dida and Paolo Maldini.
Right before the half-time whistle sounded, Andrea Pirlo stood over a free-kick just outside the 18-yard box. He struck the ball around the wall and it hit Inzaghi's chest, redirected and beat Pepe Reina.
In the 84th minute, Kaka played Inzaghi through, beating the Liverpool offside trap. Maintaining his perpetually collected approach, Inzaghi rounded Reina and slotted the ball into the back of the net.
Dirk Kuyt pulled one back in the 89th minute, but Pippo's brace earned him man of the match honors in what was the best performance of his Milan career.
