 πŸŒ Real Madrid are the first team since Juventus (1996-1998) to reach three consecutive Europe Cup/Champions League finals, while they could become the first team to win it three years in a row since Bayern Munich (1974-1976).

🌐 This will be a repeat of the 1981 European Cup final, which Liverpool won 1-0 thanks to an Ala Kennedy goal. It will be the third final to have been played in the competition as both the European Cup and Champions League, followin Ajax vs Juventus and Ajax vs Milan.

🌐That 1981 final was the last time Real Madrid l the showpiece - they've won each of their six finals since then, all in the Champions League (1998, 2000, 2002, 2014, 2016 and 2017).

🌐Spanish sides have won their last six major European finals against English sides (excludin Super Cups), most recently Sevilla beating Liverpool in the 2016 Europa League. However, Liverpool were the last English side to beat a Spanish side in a final, triumphing 5-4 over Ala in the 2001 UEFA Cup.
