Indeed, Madrid have only failed to find the net against one of the 58 teams they have faced in UEFA Champions League history. They lost 1-0 at home to Arsenal in the 2005/06 first knockout round before a goalless draw in north London.

Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick in the Merengues' semi-final first leg against Atlético took his personal UEFA Champions League tally for Madrid to 88, meaning he has scored a remarkable 17.6% of the club's goals in the competition. Only 22 sides have registered more all-time UEFA Champions League goals than Ronaldo's career haul of 103!
