In popular culture[edit]

This match is commonly known in Spain as El Centenariazo. Real Madrid were expected to win the final comfortably as they were at the time one of the most competitive teams in Europe and the final was being played at their home ground, the Santiago Bernabeu stadium. Everything was prepared so that after the victory Madrid could celebrate their 100 anniversary lifting this new trophy. Real Madrid were indeed founded on exactly the same day 100 years ago.
