The meeting at the San Siro, on Saturday 28th May (8:45pm, CEST), it will be Atlético Madrid's third final. Furthermore, with this Madrid derby, which in 2014 became the first final between two teams from the same city, Atlético became the second team that Real Madrid have played twice in the European Cup final having faced Stade de Reims (in 1956 and 1959).
Ten European Cups in thirteen finals
Real Madrid have an impressive win rate in the finals, winning 10 titles of a possible 13 (77%). The first of those came 60 years ago, at the very start of the competition, and it paved the way for five titles in a row. After two finals that they lost in 1962 and 1964, the sixth was to arrive in 1966. 1981 was the last time Real Madrid lost in a European Cup final, as in the last four in which they have featured; they have ended up lifting the trophy (1998, 2000, 2002 and 2014).
