The vibes in Madrid are simple, ‘A Por La 15’

Real Madrid recently won the 2023–24 UEFA Champions League final against German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

Real Madrid have won every one of their last nine final appearances and have 15 UCL titles, which is twice as much as the next closest team, AC Milan. After defeating Bayern Munich in the semifinals, Los Blancos are undefeated in their last 12 UCL games (8-4-0) and their last 25 games (16-9-0) in all competitions.

This is only the third time as a team and their first since 2013, Borussia Dortmund have advanced to the championship final game after defeating Paris Saint-Germain. But with the stronger team and an ongoing relationship with the biggest European club competition, Los Blancos are the clear favourites in this decisive match.

The team led by Carlo Ancelotti has only lost one game, which also was longer than ninety minutes, this season. The Madrid team dominated the group stage, taking home all six wins. They had to work hard to defeat RB Leipzig in the knockout stages. Then they had to give it their all to defeat Manchester City and Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively.

What is the number of Champions League titles that Real Madrid have won?

The Spanish powerhouse enjoys participating in this competition and some of the players even claim that Real Madrid‘s favourite competition is the UCL. They have 15 Champions League titles (or European Cup before 1992), making them the club with the most tournament titles.

Los Blancos won the first five tournaments, from 1956 to 1960, with Paco Gento and Alfredo Di Stefano. Having won the Champions League five times in the previous ten seasons, they are also among the most accomplished clubs in the history of the competition.

In their history, Real Madrid have participated in eighteen Champions League finals. The Spanish team have a reputation for being among the best in finals play and their record of just losing three of their previous 17 games supports this claim.

Madrid have twice as many titles as AC Milan, the second-best team in the competition, ensuring their supremacy in Europe.

The strongest evidence of that was perhaps shown in the 2014 UCL final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, their local rivals. Sergio Ramos’ equaliser drastically altered the game’s dynamics, as Real Madrid won 4-1 after extra time despite trailing 0-1 for much of the whole match, with just seconds remaining before the referee’s whistle.
