The 1958–59 European Cup was the fourth season of the European Cup, Europe's premier club football tournament. The competition was won by Real Madrid for the fourth time in a row, who beat Stade Reims 2–0 in the final at Neckarstadion, Stuttgart, on 3 June 1959. The two finalists also competed in the final of the first European Cup in 1956.

This season was the first one in which Turkey sent its official national champion, and the first time of a Finnish participation. Olympiakos, Greece's first-ever entrants, withdrew for political reasons before playing their first tie. Spain was still represented by its runners-up, as its champions Real Madrid had already qualified as holders.
