{La Segunda} May 30, 1957 [+] - “An Alfredo di Stéfano penalty and a goal from Francisco ‘Paco’ Gento saw Real Madrid CF pick up the European Champion Clubs’ Cup for a second time, this time from General Franco at their own Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.” Real Madrid 2-0 Fiorentina | Di Stéfano 69’ (p); Gento 75’

{La Tercera} May 29, 1958 [+] - “It took extra time at the Heysel Stadium in Brussels for Real Madrid CF to get the better of AC Milan, Alfredo di Stéfano scoring in his third successive European Champions’ Club Cup final before Francisco Gento hit the winner.” | Real Madrid 3-2 AC Milan | Di Stéfano 74’; Rial 79’; Gento 107’

{La Cuarta} June 3, 1959 [+] - “Spanish expectations were met in the final as Enrique Mateos and Alfredo di Stéfano gave Madrid - hamstrung by the absence of Puskás and an early injury to Raymond Kopa - a routine 2-0 victory.” | Real Madrid 2-0 Stade Reims | Mateos 1’; Di Stéfano 47’

{La Quinta} May 18, 1960 [+] - “Real Madrid CF’s fifth successive European Champion Clubs’ Cup final win was the best of the lot, with three goals from Alfredo di Stéfano and four for Ferenc Puskás seeing Eintracht Frankfurt blown away at Glasgow’s Hampden Park.” | Real Madrid 7-3 Eintracht Frankfurt | Di Stéfano 27’, 30’, 73’; Puskás 46’ 56’ (p); 60’; 71’

{La Sexta} May 11, 1966 [+] - “Old habits die hard, so it was no great surprise when Real Madrid CF returned to winning ways in 1965/66 with their sixth European Champion Clubs’ Cup success. What was striking about this Madrid team, however, was a line-up showing eleven Spanish players for the final against FK Partizan - and captained by the veteran Paco Gento.” | Real Madrid 2-1 FK Partizan | Amaro 70’; Serena 76’

{La Séptima} May 20, 1998 [+] - “Real Madrid CF won Europe’s top club competition for the seventh time at the Amsterdam Arena, with the UEFA Champions League final being settled by Predrag Mijatović’s second-half strike against Juventus.” | Juventus 0-1 Real Madrid | Mijatović 66’

{La Novena} May 15, 2002 [+] - “Zidane was at it again at Hampden Park. After Lúcio had equalised Raúl González’s early strike for Madrid, the French international scored a goal worthy of winning any final. Which it did: his brilliant 45th-minute volley dividing the sides. Madrid were European champions in their centenary year, their ninth such triumph.” | Bayer Leverkusen 1-2 Real Madrid | Raúl 8; Zidane 45’
