Match background Only this chapter

Two of European club football's most famous names will meet at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium as Real Madrid CF look to lift the trophy for the 13th time – and the third season in a row – by overcoming a Liverpool FC side in a first final for 11 years and seeking their sixth European Cup overall.

Victory in Kyiv would make Real Madrid the fourth team to claim three successive European crowns – and the first to do it twice, following their victories in the first five European Cup finals between 1956 and 1960. AFC Ajax (1971–73) and FC Bayern München (1974–76) are the only other clubs to have lifted the trophy three years running.

• Madrid's Zinédine Zidane could also become the first coach to win three European Cups in a row, having become the first to win the UEFA Champions League in consecutive seasons in 2017.

• Success in Kyiv would make it five UEFA Champions League triumphs for the competition's record goalscorer, Cristiano Ronaldo – another first. Ronaldo would become only the fifth player to appear in five European Cup final victories, and the first in the UEFA Champions League era, should he feature and Madrid triumph; the other four players are Madrid trio Paco Gento (the only player to appear in six final victories), Alfredo Di Stéfano and José María Zárraga, plus AC Milan's Paolo Maldini.

• The fixture is a repeat of the 1981 European Cup final, won 1-0 by Liverpool in Paris to give them a third triumph in the competition in five years. That was Madrid's last defeat in the final of this competition.

• That 1981 victory is also the only time an English club has prevailed against Spanish opposition in a European Cup final. Liga clubs have won the other three meetings, FC Barcelona beating Arsenal FC 2-1 in 2006 and Manchester United FC in both 2009 (2-0) and 2011 (3-1).

This is the ninth time two clubs have met for a second time in the European Cup final – and the third season in a row, after Real Madrid's 2016 win against Club Atlético de Madrid, beaten by their neighbours in the 2014 final, and last year's defeat of Juventus, who had also succumbed to the Merengues in 1998. This is Madrid's fourth final rematch, and they have won all three previous such encounters; they also beat Stade de Reims in 1956 and 1959.

• Bob Paisley's Liverpool also beat Madrid, coached by Vujadin Boškov, 1-0 in the 1981 European Champion Clubs' Cup final in Paris, Alan Kennedy scoring the only goal nine minutes from time.

• The teams on 27 May 1981 at the Parc des Princes were:

Final pedigree
Real Madrid
• Madrid have won a record 12 European Cups, and have triumphed in their last six finals. Overall their final record is W12 L3:
1955/56: Real Madrid 4-3 Stade de Reims Champagne
1956/57: Real Madrid 2-0 ACF Fiorentina
1957/58: Real Madrid 3-2 AC Milan (aet)
1958/59: Real Madrid 2-0 Stade de Reims Champagne
1959/60: Real Madrid 7-3 Eintracht Frankfurt
1961/62: SL Benfica 5-3 Real Madrid
1963/64: FC Internazionale Milano 3-1 Real Madrid
1965/66: Real Madrid 2-1 FK Partizan
1980/81: Liverpool FC 1-0 Real Madrid
1997/98: Real Madrid 1-0 Juventus
1999/00: Real Madrid 3-0 Valencia CF
2001/02: Real Madrid 2-1 Bayer 04 Leverkusen
2013/14: Real Madrid 4-1 Club Atlético Madrid (aet)
2015/16: Real Madrid 1-1 Club Atlético Madrid (aet; Real Madrid win 5-3 on penalties)
2016/17: Real Madrid 4-1 Juventus

• Last season, Madrid became the first side to make a successful UEFA Champions League title defence. They were the fifth reigning champions to return to the UEFA Champions League final the following season, and the first team to retain the European Cup since Milan (1989, 1990).

Cristiano Ronaldo's two goals against Juventus made him the first player to score in three UEFA Champions League finals, following his goals in 2008, for Manchester United FC, and 2014.

• Sergio Ramos, who found the net against Atlético in both 2014 and 2016, could join Ronaldo in scoring in three finals. Ramos is one of five players to have scored in two finals, along with Raúl González (2000, 2002), Samuel Eto'o (2006, 2009), Lionel Messi (2009, 2011) and Mario Mandžukić (2013, 2017). Marcelo and Gareth Bale – who both netted in 2014 – and Marco Asensio and Casemiro, on target 12 months ago, could all join that list in Kyiv.

• Ramos, Ronaldo, Bale, Luka Modrić, Karim Benzema, Dani Carvajal, Marcelo and Isco could all appear in their fourth UEFA Champions League final victory for Madrid.

Real Madrid celebrate reaching the final

• In addition to those eight, Raphaël Varane appeared in the 2014 and 2017 finals while Keylor Navas, Toni Kroos and Casemiro all featured in 2016 and 2017. Lucas Vázquez came on as a substitute in 2016, as did Asensio last year; Kiko Casilla and Nacho have been unused replacements in each of the last two finals, with Mateo Kovačić on the bench in 2017.

• Madrid are the first team to reach three successive UEFA Champions League finals since Juventus between 1996 and 1998 – the Bianconeri won only one of those matches.

• Madrid's triumph in Cardiff in 2017 was the tenth UEFA Champions League win for a Spanish side – twice as many as the next highest-ranked nation, Italy. England are on four triumphs, with Germany (three) the only other country to have recorded multiple victories.

• This is Madrid's 31st UEFA final. In addition to their 15 European Cup appearances, they were UEFA Cup winners in 1985 and 1986 and European Cup Winners' Cup runners-up in 1971 and 1983. They lifted the UEFA Super Cup in 2002, 2014, 2016 and 2017 having lost in 1998 and 2000, and won the European/South American Cup in 1960, 1998 and 2002, losing in 1966 and 2000.

Liverpool and the other highest scoring Champions League teams

• The Reds have won five of their seven previous European Cup finals:
1976/77: Liverpool 3-1 VfL Borussia Monchengladbach
1977/78: Liverpool 1-0 Club Brugge KV
1980/81: Liverpool 1-0 Real Madrid CF
1983/84: Liverpool 1-1 AS Roma (aet; Liverpool win 4-2 on penalties)
1984/85: Juventus 1-0 Liverpool
2004/05: Liverpool 3-3 AC Milan (aet; Liverpool win 3-2 on penalties)
2006/07: AC Milan 2-1 Liverpool

• This is Liverpool's 20th UEFA final. In addition to their seven European Cup appearances, they are three-time winners of the UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League (1973, 1976, 2001), losing the 2016 final, and won the UEFA Super Cup in 1977, 2001 and 2005, losing in 1978 and 1984. They also lost in the 1965/66 European Cup Winners' Cup final, and the 1981 and 1984 European/South American Cup.

• No members of Liverpool's squad have previously played in a UEFA Champions League final.

• The Reds' last European final was a 3-1 loss against another Spanish side, Sevilla FC, in Basel in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League. Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, James Milner, Emre Can, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino all started that match at St. Jakob-Park; Jordan Henderson was an unused substitute.

• Liverpool's only other final against Spanish opposition was a 5-4 golden-goal success against Deportivo Alavés in the 2001 UEFA Cup in Dortmund. Their record in UEFA finals against Spanish opposition is therefore W2 L1.

Highlights: Real Madrid 2-2 Bayern (4-3 agg)

Match background
Real Madrid
• Real Madrid's record in Kyiv is P4 W1 D2 L1 F6 A7, all four games coming in the UEFA Champions League against FC Dynamo Kyiv. Their last two trips both ended 2-2 in the group stage in November 2004 – a game in which Zidane played – and 2006. They lost 2-0 on their first visit in the 1998/99 quarter-finals, a young Andriy Shevchenko scoring both goals, before a 2-1 second group stage win the following season, Fernando Morientes and Raúl on target.

• Madrid's European season started with a victory against Premier League opposition, 2-1 against Manchester United FC in the UEFA Super Cup in Skopje on 8 August. They drew 1-1 at home to Tottenham Hotspur FC on matchday three, but a 12-match unbeaten run (W8 D4) against English opposition was ended by a 3-1 loss in the reverse fixture on 1 November. That was Madrid's first defeat against a team from England since their 4-0 loss at Liverpool in March 2009.

• Zidane's side have scored in their last 29 UEFA matches, their most recent blank coming against English opposition – a goalless draw against Manchester City FC in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg.

• The Spanish club's overall record against English sides is W15 D11 L11 F52 A43.

2017 final highlights: Real Madrid 4-1 Juventus

• Madrid's record in this season's competition is W8 D2 L2 F30 A15. They have kept only three clean sheets in 12 matches, but have found the net in their last 27 UEFA Champions League outings.

• Zidane's charges finished second in Group H this season, collecting 13 points. They beat Paris Saint-Germain 5-2 on aggregate in the round of 16 (3-1 home, 2-1 away).

• Madrid reached the last four in dramatic circumstances, winning 3-0 in the quarter-final first leg at Juventus only to fall three goals behind in the Bernabéu return – before Ronaldo converted an added-time penalty to take them through. That 3-1 defeat at the Bernabéu ended Madrid's 18-match unbeaten home run in the UEFA Champions League (W15 D3).

• The Spanish side then ousted FC Bayern München in the semi-finals, winning 2-1 in Germany and progressing thanks to a 2-2 home draw.

• The 3-1 defeat at home to Juventus in the quarter-final second leg is only Madrid's third in their last 31 European fixtures, winning 21 and drawing seven. Those draws include the 2016 final against Atlético Madrid, which Madrid won on penalties in Milan.

• This season Ronaldo became the first player to score in all six group games, registering nine goals overall. He also struck in each leg of both the last 16 and the quarter-final, meaning he had scored in every European game this season before drawing a blank in both legs of the semi-final; he is the competition's top scorer with 15 goals. The only player to have bettered that total is Ronaldo himself, with 17 goals in 2013/14 and 16 in 2015/16.

• Madrid's shoot-out record in European competition is W2 L2:
5-3 v Club Atlético de Madrid, 2015/16 UEFA Champions League final
1-3 v FC Bayern München, 2011/12 UEFA Champions League semi-final
3-1 v Juventus, 1986/87 European Cup second round
5-6 v FK Crvena zvezda, 1974/75 European Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final

2005 final highlights: 'The Miracle of Istanbul'

• Liverpool's record in two visits to Kyiv is W1 D1 L0 F3 A2. Danny Murphy and Steven Gerrard struck as a Reds team coached by Phil Thompson, with manager Gérard Houllier absent for health reasons, won 2-1 against Dynamo at the Dynamo Stadium in the 2001/02 UEFA Champions League first group stage. Rafael Benítez's side then drew 1-1 with Maccabi Haifa FC at the same venue – by that time renamed the Valeriy Lobanovskiy Stadium – in the third quliafying round of the 2006/07 competition, Peter Crouch their scorer to complete a 3-2 aggregate triumph.

• The Reds have already faced Spanish opposition this season, drawing home (2-2) and away (3-3) with Sevilla FC; they let slip a 3-0 half-time lead in the second game in Spain.

• A 3-0 home win against Villarreal CF in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League semi-final is Liverpool's only success in their last seven fixtures against Spanish clubs (D2 L4) – a sequence that includes that 2016 UEFA Europa League final loss to Sevilla.

• Overall, the Merseyside club's record against Spanish sides is W14 D12 L11 F46 A38. They have won only one of their last seven fixtures against Liga clubs outside England – that 2009 success at Real Madrid.

• Liverpool's unbeaten record in this season's competition was ended by the 4-2 defeat at AS Roma in the semi-final second leg, the Reds progressing 7-6 on aggregate. Their record since matchday one is now W7 D4 L1 F40 A13.

Klopp: It's just amazing

• Liverpool finished first in Group E this season with 12 points, beating NK Maribor 7-0 away and FC Spartak Moskva by the same scoreline at home. FC Porto were overcome 5-0 in the away first leg and on aggregate in the round of 16, before a 5-1 defeat of Manchester City over the two legs of the quarter-finals (3-0 home, 2-1 away).

• Including qualifying, Liverpool have scored 46 goals in 14 games this season, at an average of 3.29 goals per game – surpassing Barcelona's record of 45 from 1999/2000. Discounting the Reds' haul of six against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in the play-offs they are on 40 goals, behind Real Madrid's 41 (2013/14), a record for a 13-match season, and Barcelona, who scored 45 in 2002/03 – although Barcelona played 16 games that season. Liverpool's 12-match average of 3.33 goals per game is higher than that of both sides.

• Liverpool's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W3 L1:
4-5 v Beşiktaş JK, 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 32
4-1 v Chelsea FC, 2006/07 UEFA Champions League semi-final
3-2 v AC Milan, 2004/05 UEFA Champions League final
4-2 v AS Roma, 1983/84 European Champion Clubs' Cup final

Real Madrid's route to the final

Match facts

Real Madrid
• Cristiano Ronaldo has made 152 appearances in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, taking him one above Xavi Hernández. Only Iker Casillas (167) has made more.

• Ronaldo's run of scoring in every game in this season's competition – a run of ten matches, 11 including last season's final – ended in the semi-final first leg. He has nevertheless scored 25 goals in his last 17 UEFA Champions League games, and is the sole Madrid player to have played every minute in this season's competition.

• Ronaldo has scored 15 goals in this season's competition – five more than any other player. He has had 33 shots on target and 33 shots off target, both also competition highs.

• Marcelo has scored in all three knockout ties this season; the full-back's last five UEFA Champions League goals have all come in the knockout rounds.

• Madrid's 2-2 draw with Villarreal CF on 19 May, having been two goals up, meant they finished third in the Liga, three points behind second-placed Club Atlético de Madrid and 17 adrift of champions FC Barcelona.

Zidane, Messi, Mandžukić and more: Ten great final goals

• Ronaldo and Gareth Bale were on target at Villarreal; Ronaldo has scored in his last ten Liga matches – a total of 18 goals – while Bale has eight goals in eight league appearances. Ronaldo finished with 26 goals in this season's Spanish league, second only to Lionel Messi (34).

• Goalkeeper Luca Zidane made his senior Madrid debut at Villarreal.

• Madrid have won only one of their last five games in all competitions, drawing three.

• Zinédine Zidane's side have scored two or more goals in each of their last seven fixtures.

• The Merengues have kept only one clean sheet in their last 11 games in all competitions.

• The 1-0 defeat at RCD Espanyol on 27 February is the last game in which Madrid failed to score, and the only one of their last 28 fixtures in which they failed to find the net; they have scored in their last 17 games.

• Nacho has not played since 31 March due to a muscle injury. Dani Carvajal had to be replaced during the semi-final first leg against Bayern with a hamstring injury, returning on 19 May.

• Ronaldo picked up an ankle problem in the 2-2 draw at FC Barcelona on 6 May, returning at Villarreal. Isco was out between 25 April and 12 May with a shoulder problem.

• Madrid lifted the FIFA Club World Cup for the second year in a row – and the third time in four years – with a 1-0 defeat of Brazil's Grêmio FBPA on 17 December. Ronaldo scored the winner having also been on target in the 2-1 semi-final win against Al Jazira Club of the UAE.

• Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Nacho, Isco, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vázquez have been included in Spain's provisional FIFA World Cup squad.

Liverpool's route to the final

• The semi-final second leg was Liverpool's 100th game in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final. They were the 18th club to reach that landmark, and the fourth from England. Their record is W47 D30 L23.

• Liverpool are the top scorers in this season's UEFA Champions League with 40 goals, also a record for an English club. Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino (both ten goals) and Sadio Mané (nine) have contributed 29 of those; only Cristiano Ronaldo, with 15, has scored more goals than the three Liverpool players.

• James Milner set a new UEFA Champions League record with his assist in the semi-final first leg – his ninth in this season's competition.

• Liverpool finished fourth in this season's Premier League, concluding their campaign with a 4-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion FC at Anfield on 13 May.

• Liverpool have failed to score in only five of their last 29 matches in all competitions, most recently the 1-0 loss at Chelsea FC on 6 May.

• The Reds have lost two of their last three fixtures, having been beaten in only one of the previous 17 (W11 D5).

• Jürgen Klopp's side have kept 11 clean sheets in their last 20 fixtures.

Liverpool's five European Cup wins

• Salah established a new record for a 38-game Premier League season with 32 goals – including one against Brighton. That ended a run of three games without a goal for the Egyptian, his longest scoreless sequence this season.

• Salah has scored 44 club goals in all competitions this season – the highest total for a Liverpool player since Ian Rush's club record of 47 set in 1983/84.

• Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered knee ligament damage in the semi-final first leg while Emre Can has been sidelined since 17 March with a back injury.

• Joël Matip picked up a thigh injury at Crystal Palace FC on 31 March and has not played since. Adam Lallana came on as a substitute at Palace but lasted only five minutes before being replaced due to a hamstring injury; he returned as a substitute against Brighton.

• Joe Gomez has been out since 28 April with an ankle problem.

• Nathaniel Clyne made his first appearance since 21 May 2017 at Everton FC on 7 April after a long-standing back injury. He went on to make two further league appearances and featured as a late substitute in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final and semi-final second legs. 

• On 13 May, Salah was named the Premier League Player of the Season. He was also selected as the Professional Football Association's Player of the Year and Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year.

• The uncapped Trent Alexander-Arnold has been included in England's squad for this summer's FIFA World Cup. Jordan Henderson is also involved, with Lallana one of five players on standby.

Head coach Only this chapter

Zinédine Zidane

Date of birth: 23 June 1972
Nationality: French
Playing career: AS Cannes, FC Girondins de Bordeaux, Juventus, Real Madrid CF
Coaching career: Real Madrid CF

• Born in Marseille to Algerian immigrant parents, Zidane took his first steps towards footballing superstardom at Cannes, transferring to Bordeaux in 1992. Blossomed into a French international, scoring twice on his debut against the Czech Republic in August 1994.

• Left Bordeaux after helping them reach the 1996 UEFA Cup final and joined Juventus, where he was a Serie A winner and UEFA Champions League runner-up in each of his first two seasons. Made a then world-record €78m switch to Madrid in 2001.

• Inspired France to 1998 FIFA World Cup glory – scoring two headers in the Saint-Denis final against Brazil – and at UEFA EURO 2000, where he was player of the tournament; winner of the Ballon d'Or in 1998, he was also voted FIFA World Player of the Year in 1998, 2000 and 2003.

• Made it third time lucky in the UEFA Champions League final by hitting a spectacular volleyed winner in Madrid's 2-1 victory over Bayer 04 Leverkusen in the 2002 showpiece at Hampden Park. Landed the UEFA Super Cup, European/South American Cup and Spanish Liga the following season.

• Announced his international retirement after UEFA EURO 2004 yet returned a year later and proved inspirational at the 2006 World Cup – especially with a virtuoso display in a quarter-final triumph over holders Brazil; however, was dismissed for a headbutt on Marco Materazzi in the final against Italy, the last match of his career.

• Became assistant to Carlo Ancelotti in 2013/14 – the season Madrid claimed their tenth European title. Took charge of Real Madrid Castilla for the next campaign, and in January 2016 succeeded Rafael Benítez as head coach, leading the club to yet another European Cup that May – the seventh to lift the trophy as player and coach. Added the UEFA Super Cup three months later, making him the fifth man to win that trophy in both guises, and finished 2016/17 by becoming the first coach to win successive UEFA Champions Leagues, also guiding Madrid to a first Liga title in five years.


Jürgen Klopp

Date of birth: 16 June 1967
Nationality: German
Playing career: SV Glatten, TuS Ergenzingen, 1. FC Pforzheim, Eintracht Frankfurt, Viktoria Sindlingen, Rot-Weiss Frankfurt, 1. FSV Mainz 05
Coaching career: 1. FSV Mainz 05, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool FC

• Having spent his early career in the lower leagues and failed to break into Eintracht's first team, Klopp turned professional with Mainz, starting off as a striker before becoming a no-nonsense defender. Never played in the top flight but made 325 second-division appearances from 1990 to 2001, setting a club record by scoring 52 goals.

• 'Kloppo', as he is known in Germany, was appointed Mainz's caretaker coach on 28 February 2001, helping the club avoid relegation to the third tier. Duly won a permanent contract and built Mainz into one of the strongest clubs in the 2. Bundesliga; narrowly missed out on promotion in 2002 and 2003 before finally taking Mainz into the top flight for the first time in 2004 and kept them in the Bundesliga until 2007, taking them into the 2005/06 UEFA Cup via the UEFA Fair Play ranking.

• After another promotion near-miss in 2007/08 Klopp – whose enthusiasm and passion, plus work as a TV pundit, have made him popular all over Germany – left for Dortmund. Took them to sixth in his first season, led them into the UEFA Europa League the next year and then, with a squad full of exciting young talent, oversaw league title wins in 2010/11 and 2011/12, adding the German Cup in the latter campaign.

• Earned even greater admiration in 2012/13 as he steered Dortmund all the way to the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley, where they lost to FC Bayern München. Dortmund reached another domestic cup final in 2014, but again came up short against Bayern.

• Announced in April 2015 he was leaving Dortmund after that season, which ended with a cup final defeat against VfL Wolfsburg. Succeeded Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager in October 2015 and took the team to the finals of the English League Cup and UEFA Europa League – helped by a quarter-final defeat of Dortmund – in his first season. Lost both, but earned a place in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League by finishing fourth in the Premier League in May 2017.

UEFA Champions League final: Did you know?

• Spain are the most successful nation with ten triumphs, five more than Italy. Spain's wins – 1998, 2000, 2002, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 – came from 15 final dates while Italy were victorious in 1994, 1996, 2003, 2007 and 2010 from their 13 appearances. England emerged victorious in 1999, 2005, 2008 and 2012 and were losing finalists in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011 while Germany were winners in 1997, 2001 and 2013 and runners-up in 1999, 2002, 2010, 2012 and 2013.

• AC Milan made their sixth appearance in 2007, a record Real Madrid and Juventus equalled in 2017. Madrid (1998, 2000, 2002, 2014, 2016, 2017) have six final victories, two more than Barcelona (2006, 2009, 2011, 2015) with Milan on three (1994, 2003, 2007).

• Italy and Spain jointly have the most appearances per nation in all-time European Cup finals with 28; Spain has 17 wins from those 28 final appearances while Italy has recorded 12 victories and 16 defeats. England has 12 wins from 19 final appearances, with Germany on 17 appearances (seven wins), Portugal nine (four wins) and the Netherlands eight (six wins).

• There have been six finals between teams from the same country. In 2000 Real Madrid beat Valencia CF 3-0 at the Stade de France; three years later Milan defeated Juventus on penalties at Old Trafford; in 2008 Manchester United overcame Chelsea in Moscow, also on spot kicks; in 2013 Bayern München beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 at Wembley. Then in 2014, Real Madrid overcame Club Atlético de Madrid 4-1 after extra time in Lisbon in the first European final between teams from the same city, and again beat their neighbours, this time on penalties, in Milan two years later.

• In the previous 25 UEFA Champions League finals, there have been 18 outright wins and seven matches decided on shoot-outs. A total of 70 goals have been scored with the most common results being 2-1 and 1-1, which have each happened on five occasions; three finals have finished 1-0.

• Seventeen European Cup finals have gone to extra time, including the 2016 decider. The finals of 1958, 1968, 1970, 1992 and 2014 were decided in the additional period, while the 1974 showpiece between Bayern and Atlético Madrid ended 1-1 after 120 minutes with Bayern winning a replay. The other 11 finals were settled by a penalty shoot-out after extra time: in 1984, 1986, 1988, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016, when Real Madrid defeated Atlético 5-3 in the shoot-out after a 1-1 draw.

• Milan's 4-0 win against FC Barcelona in the 1994 final remains the biggest winning margin in a UEFA Champions League final and the Rossoneri were also involved in the highest scoring showpiece when they shared six goals with Liverpool in 2005 before penalties. In terms of the European Cup, Madrid's 7-3 defeat of Eintracht Frankfurt in 1960 remains the most impressive while Bayern (1974 v Atlético Madrid) and Milan (1989 v Steaua Bucureşti) also recorded 4-0 successes.

• No player has scored a hat-trick in a UEFA Champions League final. Daniele Massaro (Milan 1994), Karl-Heinz Riedle (Borussia Dortmund 1997), Hernán Crespo (Milan 2005), Filippo Inzaghi (Milan 2007), Diego Milito (Internazionale Milano 2010) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid 2017) all struck twice. In European Cup terms, Ferenc Puskás scored four goals in Madrid's 7-3 defeat of Eintracht Frankfurt in 1960, when Alfredo Di Stéfano found the net three times; Puskás scored another final hat-trick in 1962, with Pierino Prati (Milan 1969) the only other player to have managed a final hat-trick.

• In 2017, Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to find the net in three UEFA Champions League finals, having previously scored for Manchester United in 2008 and Real Madrid in 2014. Raúl González (Madrid 2000 and 2002), Samuel Eto'o (Barcelona 2006 and 2009), Lionel Messi (Barcelona 2009 and 2011), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid 2014, 2016) and Mario Mandžukić (Bayern München 2013, Juventus 2017) have scored in two UEFA Champions League finals – part of an exclusive club of 19 players to have found the net in more than one European Cup showpiece. Di Stéfano and Puskás lead the list having each scored seven goals for Madrid.

 • Paolo Maldini's goal 51 seconds into the 2005 showpiece is the fastest in a UEFA Champions League final.

• Jens Lehmann (2006), Didier Drogba (2008) and Juan Cuadrado (2017) are the only players to be dismissed in a European Cup final.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to lift the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburger SV 1983), Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), José Mourinho (FC Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

• Seven people have won the trophy as both a player and a coach: Miguel Muñoz (Real Madrid 1956, 1957 (player); Real Madrid 1960, 1966 (coach); Giovanni Trapattoni (AC Milan 1963, 1969; Juventus 1985); Johan Cruyff (Ajax 1971, 1972, 1973; Barcelona 1992); Carlo Ancelotti (AC Milan 1989, 1990; AC Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014); Frank Rijkaard (AC Milan 1989, 1990, Ajax 1995; Barcelona 2006); Josep Guardiola (Barcelona 1992; Barcelona 2009, 2011); Zinédine Zidane (Real Madrid 2002; Real Madrid 2016, 2017).

• In 2017, Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy; Milan (1989, 1990) had been the last club to pick up consecutive European Champion Clubs' Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United FC (2008, 2009) have all returned to the final as holders only to lose.

• Only two sides have ever won the UEFA Champions League in their own country: Juventus (1996, final in Rome) and Dortmund (1997, final in Munich). Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in FC Barcelona's 7-1 triumph against Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat reproduced by FC Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at FC BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Eleven more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine goals in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15 and Ronaldo himself equalled in 2017/18. Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi and Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick on matchday three of the 2016/17 competition was his seventh in the competition, a record Ronaldo matched against Club Atlético de Madrid in the 2016/17 semi-finals.

• SS Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete at this level, having been aged 43 years and 252 days when he figured against Madrid on matchday six of the 2007/08 edition.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years and 59 days, in AS Roma's 1-1 draw at PFC CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years and 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Celestine Babayaro is the youngest player to have appeared – he was 16 years and 87 days when he started for RSC Anderlecht against FC Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994. He was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Peter Ofori-Quaye is the youngest player to have scored, aged 17 years and 195 days, in Olympiacos FC's 5-1 reverse at Rosenborg BK on 1 October 1997.
