Borussia Dortmund, Tottenham and APOEL were Madrid's opponents in the group stages.

After coming second in the group, the Whites were set to face París Saint-Germain in the last-16, who had rounded off a stellar group stage, firing home 25 goals, more than any other club. The first leg was played at the Bernabéu and the Whites had to come back after going a goal down. A Ronaldo brace and a goal from Marcelo cancelled out Rabiot's opener. In Paris, AsensioLucas and Cristiano linked up beautifully before the Portuguese star fired home, and Casemiro also found the back of the net.
The quarter-finals saw the Whites take on Juventus again, after last year's final in Cardiff, this time it was over two legs. It looked like the tie was sewn up after a 0-3 away win, but in the Bernabéu the Whites had to suffer in order to get to the semi-finals. Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo were standout performers, as the Portuguese beat Buffon with a perfect overhead kick scoring the best goal of this Champions League campaign. 

The final clash before heading to Kiev was a true classic. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich faced off in another dizzying European night for a place in the final. The Whites won at the Allianz for the third consecutive time. Again, it was Marcelo, with a sublime strike, and Asensio capping off some fine counter-attacking play to give Zidane's side the advantage. In the return leg, the Santiago Bernabéu was treated to yet another magic night. Benzema was on top form and Keylor Navas proved his mettle between the sticks to see out a draw that paved the way for Real Madrid to head to the Kiev final. 

In the final vs Liverpool after Liverpool's Sadio Mané cancelled out Karim Benzema's opener for Real Madrid, two goals from man of the match Gareth Bale proved the difference in a 3–1 win for Los Blancos, making them the first team to win three back-to-back titles in Champions League era and the first since Bayern Munich defeated Saint-Étienne in the 1976 European Cup Final; it was additionally their fourth title in five seasons and their 13th European Cup overall.
