Andrés Iniesta can equal Clarence Seedorf's record of having played on the winning side in four UEFA Champions League finals when FC Barcelona take on Juventus in Berlin on Saturday.

Midfielder Iniesta came on at half-time when Barcelona beat Arsenal FC 2-1 in Paris in 2006, and also started the 2009 and 2011 victories over Manchester United FC in Rome and Wembley respectively. A success in Berlin would ensure Iniesta emulates Seedorf, who remains the only player to have lifted Europe's top club prize with three different teams: AFC Ajax (1995), Real Madrid CF (1998) and AC Milan (2003 and 2007).

Although Xavi Hernández and Lionel Messi were also in the Barcelona squad for their three most recent triumphs, they did not feature against Arsenal in 2006. Xavi and Messi will, however, hope to figure in their third final wins, as will Sergio Busquets and Pedro Rodríguez. Daniel Alves missed the 2009 decider through suspension.

A victory would take Iniesta, 31, level with Seedorf and several others with the joint-fourth most European Cup winners' medals. Francisco Gento heads that particular list as the sole Real Madrid player to appear in each of their first six European Champion Clubs' Cup final successes. Milan's Paolo Maldini and Liverpool FC's Phil Neal are the only non-Madrid men on the all-time leaderboard.
