Juventus v Real Madrid: past meetings

The final in Cardiff will be a 19th meeting for Juventus and Real Madrid – all in the European Cup – and with eight wins apiece, there is nothing to separate the two teams.

The 2017 UEFA Champions League final will be the 19th UEFA competition meeting between Juventus and Real Madrid – all in the European Cup – and there is virtually nothing between the sides. Both clubs have eight wins and two draws, with Juve scoring 21 goals to Madrid’s 18. UEFA.com runs through the previous fixtures.

The opening instalment in what would become one of Europe’s most even rivalries, needed appropriately a third game to separate the teams. Having had their five-year grip on the European Cup broken the previous season, Madrid won in Turin through Alfredo Di Stéfano’s late strike as they sought to regain the crown – only for Omar Sívori’s goal in Spain to force a Paris replay. There Felo put the five-time champions in front within 60 seconds, and while Sívori replied again before-half-time, second-half efforts from Luis del Sol and Justo Tejada finally took Madrid through.

Who are the most in-form teams in European football?

Juventus are now the UEFA Champions League’s form team and will go into the final on a 12-game European unbeaten run, while Monaco, Porto and Barcelona all have claims to being the most impressive current domestic performers.

Real Madrid’s 15-match unbeaten run in UEFA competition ended in the last-ever European fixture at Atlético’s Calderón home, with Zinédine Zidane’s side now tasked with spoiling Juventus’s 12-game purple patch in the UEFA Champions League final.

Monaco, meanwhile, are in devastating domestic form, having won their last nine matches, while Porto still have the longest unbeaten league streak and meanest defence in Europe’s top leagues – even if they are second in the table in Portugal behind Benfica.
