Nine Real Madrid Players Equal Cristiano Ronaldo's Champions League Record

Until Saturday, Cristiano Ronaldo was the only player in Champions League history to have won the tournament five times.

But after his former club Real Madrid beat Liverpool 1-0 in the 2022 final, Ronaldo is now one of TEN five-time UCL winners.

Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Casemiro, Nacho, Dani Carvajal, Isco, Toni Kroos, Marcelo and Luka Modric all equaled Ronado's record as they were part of Real's UCL-winning squad.

Benzema, Casemiro, Carvajal, Kroos and Modric started Saturday's final, while Nacho, Bale, Isco and Marcelo were unused substitutes in Paris.

Despite not featuring in the final, Marcelo was the first player to lift the trophy.

The Brazilian left-back has been Real's captain this season, but he is set to leave the club on a free transfer next month.
