Real Madrid makes Champions League History

Since Madrid reached (and won) the first five European Cup finals between 1956 and 1960, only five other clubs had managed even three in a row – Benfica, Ajax, Bayern and, in the UEFA Champions League era, AC Milan and Juventus.

Two goals in each half from striker Karim Benzema who was making a start after being dropped in the first leg. was all they needed to secure a place to Kiev.

Remarkably, in all those previous cases, when one team reached three in a row, another club immediately matched that feat!
