Real Madrid's victory in the 2022 UEFA Champions League final has enabled Karim Benzema, Dani Carvajal and Luka Modrić to draw level with former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo on five competition victories.

Ronaldo was the first player to win five UEFA Champions League titles, having first lifted the trophy with Manchester United in 2008 before adding further triumphs with Real Madrid in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Madrid's win against Liverpool at the Stade de France means Benzema, Carvajal and Modrić have now also appeared in five final victories. In addition, Casemiro and Toni Kroos played in their fourth final victory in Paris while Andrés Iniesta and Clarence Seedorf – the only man to have won the Champions League with three different clubs – are also one adrift of Ronaldo.

Kroos and Casemiro actually have five UEFA Champions League titles to their name but took part in only four finals, missing out in 2013 and 2014 respectively, while Bale, Isco and Marcelo have also appeared in four final wins having remained on the bench for the 2022 decider. Team-mate Nacho has also been a member of five victorious squads but featured in only the 2018 final, while several other players have four titles to their name but only three final appearances:

Lionel Messi: 2006*, 2009, 2011, 2015 (Barcelona)
Gerard Piqué: 2008*, 2009, 2011, 2015 (Manchester United, Barcelona)
Raphaël Varane: 2014, 2016*, 2017, 2018 (Real Madrid)
Xavi Hernández: 2006*, 2009, 2011, 2015 (Barcelona)

*Did not play in the final

Madrid's Lucas Vázquez has featured in four victorious squads but appeared in the final in only 2016 and 2022, while Mateo Kovačić has four winners' medals but only a single final appearance, in Chelsea's 2021 victory.

Ronaldo's tally of four Champions League final goals also puts him out on his own. The Portugal forward's first showpiece effort was for United against Chelsea in 2008, and he also found the net – in the final minute of added time – against Atlético in 2014. Ronaldo added two further goals against Juventus in Cardiff in 2017.

He remains some way of adrift, however, of the joint all-time record of seven European Cup final goals held by fellow Real Madrid luminaries Alfredo Di Stéfano and Ferenc Puskás.
