Players with most Champions League titles: Carvajal and Modrić ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Kroos

Real Madrid pair Dani Carvajal and Luka Modrić moved on to six UEFA Champions League final wins after their victory in the 2024 showpiece, one ahead of Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Toni Kroos.

Real Madrid's victory in the 2024 UEFA Champions League final enabled Dani Carvajal and Luka Modrić to move ahead of former team-mates Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema on six showpiece victories, with Toni Kroos joining that pair on five final wins.

Ronaldo was the first player to win five Champions League finals, having first lifted the trophy with Manchester United in 2008 before adding further triumphs with Real Madrid in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018. Former Madrid midfielder Casemiro, Andrés Iniesta and Clarence Seedorf – the only man to have won the Champions League with three different clubs – are on four final victories.

Kroos has actually appeared in six Champions League-winning campaigns, but took part in only five finals, missing out in 2013, while Casemiro, who has featured in four final wins, suffered the same fate in 2014. Bale, Isco and Marcelo also only appeared in four final wins, having remained on the bench for the 2022 decider.

Madrid's captain in the 2024 final, Nacho, has also been a member of six victorious squads but was making only his second final appearance at Wembley after featuring in 2018, while several other players have been part of four triumphant campaigns but made 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 five victorious squads but appeared in the final in only 2016 and 2024, 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.
