A minute's silence was observed in the stadium and a banner was unveiled with the words “We won't forget you”, on the 25th anniversary of his death.
Twenty-five years may have past, but his memory is still very much alive in the Santiago Bernabéu. Prior to kick-off in the match against Alavés, the Whites' stadium paid tribute to Juanito, who lost his life on the 25th of April 1992 following a car accident. A banner displaying a giant image of the madridista legend was unveiled in the stands, alongside another with the number 7 and the words “We won't forget you”, as the Santiago Bernabéu observed a minute's silence in his memory. Following this tribute, just as in the seventh minute of every game, the fans came together to sing "illa, illa, illa, Juanito maravilla".
