Real Madrid downed Snaidero Caserta 117-113 to claim its second title in this competition.
On 14 March 1989, Drazen Petrovic was at the centre of one of the most unforgettable moments in the history of Real Madrid's basketball team. The Balkan-born player played a pivotal role in the Cup Winners' Cup final against Snaidero Caserta, in which he produced a masterclass featuring 62 points, which was over half of the Whites' scoring return.

The match-up took place at Athens' Peace and Friendship Stadium and saw the Whites run out 117-113 winners to take the title for the second time in the club's history. In addition to the fine performance from Petrovic, Óscar Schmidt also produced an impressive display (44 points) for the Italians and a thrilling end to the game was ultimately decided in overtime.

Petrovic turned out for Real Madrid during the 1988/89 season, when in addition to the European Cup Winners' Cup, he also claimed a Copa del Rey crown. Despite spending just one year at the club, his quality and personality on the court saw him become a legend within the club's basketball ranks.
