Attendance 135,000

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 135,000 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.[1]

Puskás and Di Stefano are two of only three players to have scored a hat-trick in a European Cup or Champions League final, 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.
