Real Madrid prevailed over Fiorentina at the Bernabéu on 30 May 1957.
Sixty-three years ago, Real Madrid secured the second of the club's 13 European Cup crowns. The setting for the final was a special one with the Santiago Bernabéu playing host to this particular showpiece. On 30 May 1957, the madridista faithful got to see their team successfully defend the continental trophy they had captured the previous year in what was the tournament's maiden edition. The opponents on this occasion were Fiorentina, who were beaten 2-0 in Madrid. Di Stéfano opened the scoring in the 70th minute, before Gento put the result beyond doubt just minutes later when he placed the ball past the Italian side's advancing goalkeeper.
