This May 28, Real Madrid could revalidate its leadership in terms of titles in the Champions League. The Spanish football team will face Liverpool in the Champions League final in search of the new European trophy.
He will do it at the Stade de France in Paris, where he could once again win a title that he has not won since 2018. Coincidentally, in this last final, Carlo Ancelotti's team also faced the 'reds', whom they beat with a resounding 3 to 1.
Since the competition was founded in the 1955/56 season, Real Madrid has become the team with the most trophies behind it. A new Champions under his belt would only increase the advantage of the Spanish club over the rest of the teams.
But how many Champions League titles has Real Madrid won? Who has each of these finals played against? These are all the European Cups that the white club has achieved in its entire history.
In its more than 66 years of history, up to 22 teams have managed to win the trophy. However, if one has stood out above all of them, that has been Real Madrid. The 13 European Cups they have attest to their experience in Europe's top competition, where they have only lost three finals out of the 16 they have reached.
The white club became the winner in the first season in which the tournament took place, in 1956, thanks to its victory against Stade de Reims by 4-3. In addition, he managed to chain up to five European titles in a row in those early days (1956, 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1960).

It was in 1962 when Real Madrid lost their first final against Benfica by 5-3 and chained another against Inter Milan just two years later, to end up winning in 1966 against Partizan. They did not reach a final again until 1981, when they lost to Liverpool 1-0, a team they will face again in 2022.
32 years had to pass for Real Madrid to win a Champions League final again. It was in 1998 against Juventus and, after that, they reached the final against Valencia in 2000 (3-0) and against Bayer (2002).
The modern era once again ratified the power of Real Madrid in European competition. The tenth came in 2014 against Atlético de Madrid and was followed by three Champions League titles in a row: in 2016 (against Atlético de Madrid), 2017 (against Juventus) and 2018 (against Liverpool).
