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 Bernabéu. Everything was prepared so that after the victory Madrid could celebrate their 100 anniversary lifting this new trophy, and Real Madrid had even been founded on exactly the same day 100 years ago.
