They have lost just twice in their last eight games across competitions, securing one draw and five wins in the other games. In that time, they have netted an impressive 17 goals and have conceded 11 goals. In addition, they have kept three clean sheets in their last five games and look ready to take on one of the most intimidating opponents in this tournament in the final.

Los Blancos, on the other hand, will enter this game on the back of a good run of form. They are unbeaten since their defeat to cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey in early January and have recorded five wins and three draws in their last eight matches across competitions. In that phase, they have scored 21 goals and have conceded just seven goals. Real have also shown defensive stability of late and have kept three clean sheets in their last five games. Now, they will look to win an unprecedented 15th UCL crown.
