Thirteen-time European champions. The greatest club of all time continue to build on their legendary status. Kiev was the setting as Real Madrid got their hands on their third consecutive Champions League title, running out 3-1 winners over Liverpool in the final. This group of players, led by Zidane, are leaving an indelible mark on footballing history. The passing of the years will do little to mute talk of the current Real Madrid side as one of the greatest teams ever assembled.
Gareth Bale was the star of the final, coming off the bench with the scores tied at 1-1 to net a brace, with one of his goals a sublime overhead kick. Benzema opened the scoring for the madridistas before Mané levelled for the English side.
