UEFA Champions League Final Special - Lisbon

Tonight's 2014 Champions League Final between the two Madrid sides, Real and Atletico, will be played at Benfica's Estadio da Luz.

As previously posted on this blog, Benfica have a wonderful history of goal nets.

This year's final is the first time the European Cup final has been played in Lisbon since 1967, when Celtic defeated Inter at Estadio Nacional.

The distinctive L-supports of Jamor 1967 were replaced a couple of years later by stanchions.

In a wonderful nod to tradition, the stanchions remained in place until 2012.
