Juventus v Real Madrid: past meetings

The final in Cardiff will be a 19th meeting for Juventus and Real Madrid – all in the European Cup – and with eight wins apiece, there is nothing to separate the two teams.

The 2017 UEFA Champions League final will be the 19th UEFA competition meeting between Juventus and Real Madrid – all in the European Cup – and there is virtually nothing between the sides. Both clubs have eight wins and two draws, with Juve scoring 21 goals to Madrid's 18. UEFA.com runs through the previous fixtures.

The opening instalment in what would become one of Europe's most even rivalries, needed appropriately a third game to separate the teams. Having had their five-year grip on the European Cup broken the previous season, Madrid won in Turin through Alfredo Di Stéfano's late strike as they sought to regain the crown – only for Omar Sívori's goal in Spain to force a Paris replay. There Felo put the five-time champions in front within 60 seconds, and while Sívori replied again before-half-time, second-half efforts from Luis del Sol and Justo Tejada finally took Madrid through.

Twenty-five years later, Emilio Butragueño gave Madrid the upper hand with the only goal of the Santiago Bernabéu first leg, but once more Juve responded in Turin thanks to Angelo Cabrini's ninth-minute reply. Unlike their first meeting, there were no replays so penalties settled the tie; both teams missed their first attempts but whereas Madrid converted their next three, Lionello Manfredonia and Luciano Favero were off target for Juve to end their side's campaign.

This first tussle of the UEFA Champions League era brought a first Juve aggregate victory en route to their second European crown – again, however, they were beaten in Spain following Raúl González's strike midway through the opening half. This time, though, they turned the tie round in Turin, Alessandro Del Piero and Michele Padovano scoring early in each half, with Madrid's hopes effectively extinguished by Rafael Alkorta's 72nd-minute red card. Juve also finished with ten men after Moreno Torricelli's dismissal with 11 minutes left, but held on.

The teams' most high-profile meeting to date came at the Amsterdam ArenA, where Predrag Mijatović got the only goal midway through the second period. The Madrid forward scrambled in from close range in the 66th minute to seal his side's seventh European title, 32 years on from their sixth.

Again Juve were in arrears after the Madrid first leg, where goals in either half from Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos had given the hosts the edge despite David Trezeguet's riposte on the stroke of half-time. It was a different story in northern Italy, strikes by Trezeguet, Del Piero – both before the interval – and Pavel Nedvěd on 73 minutes rendering irrelevant a late effort from Juve old boy Zinédine Zidane. Nedvěd, however, picked up a late booking to rule him out of the final, lost on penalties to AC Milan.

The Italian giants made it three two-legged knockout wins in a row against Madrid despite finding themselves in familiar territory following the first leg. Once more their colours were lowered in the Spanish capital courtesy of Iván Helguera's 31st-minute strike, but Trezeguet netted with 15 minutes left in Turin to bring on extra time. After Ronaldo and Juve substitute Alessio Tacchinardi had been sent off in the 113th minute, three minutes later Marcelo Zalayeta conjured a Bianconeri winner.

Juve gained the upper hand in the clubs' first group meetings, goals from Del Piero and Amauri securing a home victory despite Ruud van Nistelrooy halving the deficit. Del Piero notched two more as Juve recorded their first away win against Madrid in 46 years – and booked their place in the round of 16. Madrid joined them there but neither advanced any further.

Three seasons ago it was Madrid's turn to hold sway in the group fixtures, all the goals at the Bernabéu coming in the first half-hour with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring either side of Fernando Llorente's 22nd-minute equaliser. Giorgio Chiellini was red-carded early in the second half and duly banned for the Turin rematch, where Juve's goals came from Arturo Vidal and Llorente and sandwiched Ronaldo and Gareth Bale's responses for the visitors. While Juve dropped into the UEFA Europa League, Madrid went on to collect the trophy for a tenth time.

In the semi-finals for the first time since their 2002/03 defeat of Madrid, Massimiliano Allegri's Juve eked out a first-leg advantage in Turin thanks to goals from Álvaro Morata – signed from Madrid the previous summer – and Carlos Tévez either side of a Ronaldo strike. Ronaldo levelled the tie from the spot 23 minutes into the Bernabéu return, only for Morata to score again 12 minutes after half-time to take Juve through at the expense of his former, and now current, employers.
