The 1980 European Cup Final was a football match held at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Madrid (the venue was decided in Zurich by UEFA on 5 October 1979), on 28 May 1980, that saw Nottingham Forest of England defeat Hamburg of Germany 1–0. In the 21st minute, John Robertson squeezed a shot past Hamburg keeper Rudolf Kargus for the only goal of the game, to give Nottingham Forest back-to-back European Cup titles. The victory also meant that Forest became the first club that had won the European Cup more times than their domestic first division.
