Los Blancos are four ahead of AC Milan on the list of most prolific European champions having triumphed on penalties last season against their local rivals Atletico Madrid in the San Siro after a 1-1 draw, Cristiano Ronaldo netting the decisive spot-kick as Real inflicted Champions League Final heartbreak on Atletico just as they had in 2014.

Real have now thwarted their neighbours’ Champions League hopes for four seasons in a row as they reached Cardiff with a 4-2 aggregate success against Atletico in this term’s semi-finals, which means Wales international forward Gareth Bale has the chance to lift the trophy in his home city.

Another target for Zinedine Zidane’s side is to become the first team for 27 years to retain the European title, the last club to have done so being AC Milan before the Champions League had been inaugurated.

But Los Blancos are only slight favourites to lift the trophy ahead of Juventus, who are contesting the showdown for the second time in three years having lost 3-1 to Barcelona in 2015.

Italian champions for the last six seasons, Juventus have been kings of Europe twice before, in 1985 and 1996, and lost the Champions League Final in 1998 to Real Madrid when Montenegrin striker Predrag Mijatovic scored the only goal in Amsterdam.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side beat Barcelona in the quarter-finals, 3-0 at home followed by a 0-0 Camp Nou draw, and then Monaco in the last four with a 4-1 aggregate triumph.

After completing the domestic double for the third consecutive campaign, the ‘Old Lady of Turin’ will try to go one better than 2015 by winning the final to land the treble – and may gain extra impetus from the fact they have lost only one of their last seven meetings with Real Madrid.
