Real Madrid beat Pallacanestro Varese (75-67) in the final in Munich.
On April 6, 1978, Real Madrid became European basketball champions for the sixth time in their history. Four years after winning the fifth title in Nantes against Pallacanestro Varese, the Whites beat the Italian team again in the final in Munich (75-67). The victory also served to break the deadlock between the two teams, who had previously dominated the field with five titles each.

Szczerbiak (26 points) and Brabender (16) were the top scorers for Madrid in final, which reached halftime at 40-41 in favour of Pallacanestro Varese. However, the team led by Lolo Sainz, who won the first of his two European Cups as Real Madrid coach, had an excellent second half and ended up beating the Italians. This victory helped to establish the team's power in the European Cup, which currently stands at 10 titles.

75-Real Madrid: Corbalán (2), Brabender (16), Szczerbiak (26), Coughan (10), Rullán (10) - Cabrera (9), Prada (2) and Iturriaga (0).
67-Pallacanestro Varese: Ossola (2), Yelverton (24), Zanatta (4), Morse (12), Meneghin (23) - and Bisson (2).
