Defending champions Real Madrid reached a record 16th final after a 4–3 aggregate win against German side Bayern Munich, thus knocking them out of the competition for the second consecutive season. This is Real Madrid’s third consecutive final, and fourth final in five tournaments with an opportunity to win a record 13th title. They are looking to be the first team in the Champions League era, and the fourth overall, to win three straight finals.
Liverpool reached their eighth final, their first since 2007, after a 7–6 aggregate win against Italian side Roma. They have won the final on five occasions (1977, 1978, 1981, 1984 and 2005). Liverpool was the first team since Bayern Munich in 2011–12 to reach the final, having qualified for the competition through the play-off round.
