On the eve of the first leg of their Spanish Super Cup clash with city neighbours Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid paid tribute to club legend Alfredo Di Stefano with a display of all the trophies he won with the club.
The silverware haul includes five European Cups, eight La Liga trophies, two Ballon d'Ors and five Pichichi Trophies (as La Liga's top scorer).

Di Stefano was also honoured with several banners in the stands and a huge replica of his No. 9 shirt on the field.
As a string quartet played "Adagio for Strings," both teams clapped in the centre circle behind the display of his trophy haul.
