On 11 May 1966, Real Madrid beat Partizan 2-1 thanks to goals from Amancio and Serena.
The Heysel Stadium (Brussels) was the venue for Real Madrid's sixth European Cup win, 54 years ago. The Whites added to their legacy with a spectacular victory in the final against Partizan. To lift the title, Miguel Muñoz's side had to overturn Vasovic's opening goal, and they did so with two strikes from Amancio and Serena.
 
The first one was a work of genius by the Galician legend, who dribbled past his man and beat the goalkeeper with a low shot. The second goal, a half volley from Serena shortly after. Real Madrid turned the match around in six minutes and lifted the title six years after the last one.
 
Undefeated at home
On the way to the final, our team won all their matches at the Bernabéu, beating Feyenoord, Kilmarnock and Anderlecht in the early rounds. In the semi-final, they knocked out Inter Milan, the champions of the two previous editions.
