Liverpool are up against Spain’s European dominance when they meet Real Madrid

2 min read

Four straight Champions League titles, four from the past five editions of the Europa League and eight European Super Cups from a possible nine since 2009, this is the strength of Spanish football on the continental stage and another Champions League could be added this Saturday.

Liverpool stand in the way of another European trophy, a fifth straight Champions League trophy, for a Spanish club.

Real Madrid are are the favourites and if they do come out on top then they would face Atletico Madrid, the winners of the Europa League, in this year’s European Super Cup final.

It would be the first time since 1994 that two teams from the city win the main European competitions and in that year Milan won the Champions League and Inter lifted the UEFA Cup.

Real and Atletico have been at the forefront of European football in recent years with Real Madrid winning the Champions League in 2014, 2016 and 2017 while Atletico lifted the Europa League in 2010, 2012 and 2018, as well as reaching the Champions League final in 2014 and 2016.

Meanwhile, Barcelona also won the Champions League in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015 while Sevilla claimed the Europa League in 2006, 2007, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Since 2006, there have been 37 European finals between the Champions League, the Europa League and European Super Cup and Spain have won 24 along with being runners-up on nine occasions.

While Premier League clubs have become richer and richer thanks to television money, so far they have not been able to translate this into trophies.

Still, Liverpool pose a serious threat especially with Mohamed Salah and the record that they were the last team to beat Real Madrid in a European Cup final.
