Real madrid vs eintracht frankfurt 1960 european cup final


The 1960 European Cup Final was the fifth final in the history of the European Cup, and was contested between Real Madrid of Spain and Eintracht Frankfurt of Germany. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest football matches ever played. Madrid won 7–3 in front of a crowd of over 127,000 people at Glasgow's Hampden Park. Frankfurt reached the final through an impressive 12–4 aggregate victory over Scottish champions Rangers, whereas Madrid overcame their bitter rivals FC Barcelona 6–2 over two legs.

The match was initially in doubt as the West German FA had banned their clubs from taking part in matches with any team containing Ferenc Puskás after the Hungarian had alleged the West German team had used drugs in 1954. Puskás had to make a formal written apology before the match could take place.

Puskás and Di Stefano are two of only three players to have scored a hat-trick in a European Cup or Champions League final (Puskas being the only one to ever score four goals), with the other being Pierino Prati for A.C. Milan in their 4–1 victory over AFC Ajax in the 1969 European Cup Final. Puskás repeated the feat in the 1962 European Cup Final.
