NEWS | 03/06/2020On 3 June 1959, Real Madrid beat Stade de Reims 2-0 in the final in Stuttgart.
On their way to the final, Real Madrid overcame Besiktas, Wiener SK and Atlético de Madrid. The semi-final clash with the rojiblancos was the first ever derby in European competition, and needed a decider to pick a winner. That game was played in Zaragoza and the madridistas won 2-1 thanks to goals from Di Stéfano and Puskas. Years later, Real Madrid would once again win a European Cup on 3 June. In 2017, they got their hands on La Duodécima against Juventus.
