1957 European Cup Final
Event 1956–57 European Cup
Date 30 May 1957
Venue Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid
Referee Leo Horn (Netherlands)
Attendance 124,000

The 1957 European Cup Final was a football match which took place at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, Spain, on 30 May 1957. It was contested between Real Madrid of Spain and Fiorentina of Italy. Real Madrid won 2–0 after goals from Alfredo Di Stéfano and Francisco Gento in the second half.[1] It was the first of four finals (also counting the Champions League era, followed by the 1965, 1984 and 2012 finals) where one of the teams played in its home stadium, and also the first final where the winning team played at their home stadium.

Controversy surrounded Real Madrid's first goal after Dutch referee Leo Horn ignored his linesman signalling that Enrique Mateos was offside before awarding a penalty for a foul on Mateos that appeared to have been committed outside the penalty area.[2]
