    After defeating Atletico Madrid 4-2 on aggregate, Real Madrid are set to meet Juventus in the Champions League final in Cardiff and a comparison on their statistics so far this season hints at quite an interesting encounter for football fans.

    While both teams have the same percentage of possession with 53%, they have also practically covered the same distance, with Los Blancos counting only six kilometres more than their Italian counterparts.

    Enjoying one of the best backlines in the tournament, Juventus have only conceded three goals in 12 games.

    The team from Turin will face the best attacking side of the season, as the Spanish club have scored 32 times so far.

    Being one of the best teams in Europe in terms of controlling the rhythm Real Madrid have conceded more fouls than any of the teams that took part in the semi-finals, while Juventus, on the other hand, have been penalised more times than any of the rest.

    Thus, it comes as no surprise that the Italians have received almost twice as many cards (26 yellow and one red) than the reigning European champions (15 yellows).

    Some More Stats To Look For:

    Real Madrid have reached the European Cup/Champions League final for a record 15th time, ahead of AC Milan (11).

    Real have reached two successive finals for the first time since they won the trophy five times in a row between 1956 and 1960.

    The Spanish club need just one more goal to become the first team to score 500 in the Champions League.

    Real madrid have won 11 of their 14 European Cup finals.

    Juventus have won the trophy twice, losing a record six finals.

    Both Real and Juventus join AC Milan on a record six final appearances in the Champions League.
