Real Madrid have become the first club to win three straight European Cup finals for the second time.
Real Madrid have made yet another piece of UEFA Champions League history. The 3-1 win against Liverpool in Kyiv was their third final triumph in a row in the competition – making them the first team to do so on more than one occasion.
Since Madrid reached (and won) the first five European Cup finals between 1956 and 1960, only five other clubs had even reached three in a row – Benfica, Ajax, Bayern and, in the UEFA Champions League era, AC Milan and Juventus.
Madrid have not just made three in a row, but they have won them all, taking them to within two of what seemed a never-to-be repeated record from the first half-decade of this competition's history.
