The 1980 Copa del Rey Final was the 78th final of the King's Cup, Spain's premier football competition. The final was played at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, on 4 June 1980, and was won by Real Madrid, who beat their own reserve team Castilla 6–1.



According to Euan McTear of These Football Times “Castilla were a shadow of the vibrant side that had thrilled the Spanish capital and the country throughout the previous few months”.[2]

"The fact we had reached the final meant that Real Madrid were guaranteed to take us very seriously. Truth is that the 6-1 result is a reflection of the distance between us and them."

—According to Castilla's Ricardo Gallego, it was “an impossible task” to actually defeat the senior side.[2]

With goals from Juanito and Santillana, Castilla fell to a 2-0 deficit by half-time. After 45 minutes of play, Andrés Sabido and Vicente del Bosque added a third and a fourth either side of the hour mark to create an insurmountable gap between the two sides.[2]

Castilla’s Ricardo Álvarez managed to narrow the deficit with ten minutes remaining. According to McTear this gesture just provoked the senior side, who had been winding the clock down for the last minutes. Seconds after Castilla scored, substitute Francisco García Hernández made it 5-1 before a last minute Juanito penalty sealed off a 6-1 triumph. After the final whistle both teams celebrated with the trophy.[2]
