103 years ago, Real Madrid defeated Arenas in the playoff game of the final (2-1).

On May 15, 1917, the Real Madrid got his fifth Spanish Cup. Arenas was the rival in this final, which required two matches to meet the champion. The first match was played on May 13 in Barcelona and no team was able to score after regulation time and a two-time overtime of 10 minutes. The 0-0 forced to play a tiebreaker game, which took place two days later at the same venue.

The decisive shock was again very even and epic for its duration. The Basque team took the lead in the first half, but the Whites tied thanks to a goal by René Petit. The score was 1-1 with the final whistle, so it was necessary to resort again to a 20-minute extension that the winner did not decide either. At the beginning of the second extension, Alvarez made both of the victory for the madridistas, who held the result until 130 ’. Thanks to this triumph, the white club raised again the Cup after its previous title in 1908.
