The 1966 European Cup Final was a football match held at the Heysel Stadium, Brussels, on 11 May 1966 that saw Real Madrid of Spain defeat Partizan of Yugoslavia 2–1.

Summary

Despite the best efforts of the continent's top teams, Real Madrid ruled over Europe once again. It was a competitive match. First Partizan took the lead through a goal by Velibor Vasović in the 55th minute, but Real Madrid soon took over, getting an equaliser in the 70th minute from Spanish international Amancio Amaro. Real Madrid got the winner in the 76th minute from Fernando Serena. With this goal Real Madrid sealed their win and became the champions of Europe once again.

This was Real's sixth European Cup triumph in the 11 years of the tournament's existence, but it would not be until 32 years later in 1998 that Real would win their seventh. They have since won a further four.
