Real Madrid Equal Record Set By Barcelona And AC Milan For Most UEFA Super Cup Wins

One could have been forgiven for assuming that 14-time European champions Real Madrid already held the record for most UEFA Super Cup wins.

They do now. At least Real now share that accolade with Barcelona and AC Milan after Wednesday's 2-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Like Barca and Milan, Real are now five-time winners of the UEFA Super Cup, having also lifted the trophy in 2002, 2014, 2016 and 2017.

The reason that Real have only competed eight times in the event - which sees the Champions League winners play the Europa League champions - is that it was not formed until 1972.

Six of Real's European Cup triumphs occurred in the 1950s and 60s.
