After narrowly beating Liverpool in the final, conquered the 14th European Cup in its history to further enlarge its difference with respect to its greatest rival: FC Barcelona.

And it is that nine players of the white team already have the same Champions League (five) that the culé team throughout its history. They are Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Dani Carvajal, Isco Alarcón, Marcelo, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Nacho Fernández.
