David Beckham was in attendance for Tuesday night's highly-anticipated clash in Madrid, meaning he missed out on seeing his son Romeo, 20, lift a professional trophy for the first time.
Romeo, who has featured for Brentford B on numerous occasions this season, was an unused substitute in the Premier League Cup final.
The tournament involves 32 teams from Premier League 2 and the Professional Development League, with Under-21 sides playing in a UEFA Champions League format.
"A night like tonight is an absolute fitting end to what has been a breathtaking season," MacFarlane told the club's official website. "I'm thrilled they delivered on the night.
"This was a big night for them; a great crowd and playing here at the Gtech."
In terms of his loan spell at Brentford from MLS side Inter Miami, it appears Romeo has a big decision to make after the Bees made a call on his future.
According to The Telegraph, the Premier League club have offered handed Beckham the opportunity to extend his stay into next season after an impressive stint in West London.
Brentford's director of football Phil Giles recently played down suggestions that bringing the 20-year-old to the club was a PR stunt.
Speaking on the The High Performance Podcast, he said: “We brought Romeo in on a loan from Inter Miami for our B team and it was one of the most read stories that day on the website. It wasn't a PR stunt in any way.
"The thought that went into Romeo is that we have relationships in football, he was looking for places to train in England as he's an Inter Miami player."
He added: "We said of course but still didn't look past the process of, is he going to add to that environment as a player? Had he come in and been like, 'I'm a Beckham,' that would have been a disaster for us. The character has to be correct.”
