Madrid FC was the name used by Real Madrid in the period 1931-1939.

A play of this final is still remembered. The mythic goalkeeper
Ricard Zamora played the last match of his career. In the very last minute,
he got an "impossible save" to a shoot by Escolà, which might have been
the draw. It is the most remembered save in Spanish football.
