For the second time, Real Madrid has achieved history by becoming the first club to win three European Cup finals in a row.
Real Madrid has added another chapter to the UEFA Champions League’s history. The 3-1 win over Liverpool in Kyiv was their third in a row, making them the only team in history to do so.
In the UEFA Champions League era, only Benfica, Ajax, Bayern, AC Milan, and Juventus had reached three consecutive European Cup finals since Madrid won the first five between 1956 and 1960.
Surprisingly, every time one team in the previous examples made it three in a row, another club quickly followed suit.
But now Madrid has not only made three consecutive appearances, but has also won all of them, bringing them within two of what appeared to be an unbreakable record set in the competition’s first half-decade.
Real Madrid currently holds the most number of the cups in the competition, having won 13 titles and made 10 semi-final appearances in the last 12 years, including four final victories.
