On 3 June 1959, Real Madrid beat Stade de Reims 2-0 in the final in Stuttgart.
On 3 June 1959, Real Madrid won their fourth successive European Cup, beating Stade de Reims 2-0. The two teams played out a rerun of the competition's first ever final, this time at Stuttgart's Neckarstadion and with the Whites coming out on top in more convincing fashion. Real Madrid went ahead inside two minutes with a Mateos strike, before Di Stéfano made it 2-0 after the break.

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.
2- Real Madrid: Domínguez, Marquitos, Santamaría, Zárraga, Ruiz, Santisteban, Kopa, Mateos, Di Stéfano, Rial and Gento.
0- Stade de Reims: Colonna, Rodzik, Jonquet, Giraudo, Penverne, Leblond, Lamartine, Bliard, Fontaine, Piantoni and Vincent.
