The 1957–58 European Cup was the third season of the European Cup, Europe's premier club football tournament. The competition was won by Real Madrid, who beat Milan 3–2 in the final, following a 2–2 draw after 90 minutes. This was Real Madrid's third European Cup title in a row. However, the 1957–58 season will be forever marked by the air disaster in Munich, when eight Manchester United players lost their lives on their way home from Belgrade, after a 3–3 draw in the quarter-final second leg with Red Star Belgrade. The English champions were ultimately defeated in the semi-finals by the eventual runners-up, AC Milan of Italy.

It was the first time that teams from the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and East Germany participated, while Turkey did not send any club. Sevilla was invited to represent Spain despite not being champions, as Spanish champions Real Madrid had already qualified as holders.

1 Wismut Karl Marx Stadt qualified due to a coin toss, after their play-off against Gwardia Warszawa was abandoned after 100 minutes due to floodlight power failure with the result of 1–1.

2 To allow an evening kick-off at Dalymount Park in Dublin, which had no floodlights, the teams agreed to change over at half-time without a break. Consequently, the Irish part-timers ran out of steam and Manchester United's 1-0 half-time lead deteriorated to 6-0. The second leg was a closer match, as it was played under lights at Old Trafford with the normal half-time break.

3 Milan beat Rapid Wien 4–2 in a play-off to qualify.
