Benfica 5 – 3 Real Madrid


Ordinarily, if Ferenc Puskás scores a twenty minute hat trick against you, it’s probably a decent option to head home early for some goulash (though at this point he’d already defected to Spain. Sorry Hungarian food fans). Considering Alberto Di Stéfano (also becoming Spanish after being Argentinian and Colombian, somehow) was also on the pitch, it’s great credit to the Portuguese side to be in touching distance of Real at half time. The second half was another matter entirely. Up steps the Black Panther to fire the Lisbon outfit to their second successive European Cup.
