It should be known, this is the first time in Champions League history (since the 1992/93 season), there have been two semi-final pairs between English and Spanish teams. In the semi-finals of the 2007/08 and 2008/09 seasons, Barca alone played three English teams, Chelsea, Liverpool and MU in the semi-finals. The representative of Spain was crowned in the 2008/09 season after defeating MU, in the remaining season, MU was crowned after overcoming Chelsea.
According to statistics, there have been 3 Spanish “civil war” matches in the Champions League final, which took place in the seasons 1999/00 (Real Madrid – Valencia), 2013/14 and 2014/15 (Real Madrid – Atletico Madrid). England also had 3 times “occupying waves” in the Champions League final in the seasons 2007/08 (MU – Chelsea), 2018/19 (Tottenham – Liverpool) and 2020/21 (Man City – Chelsea).
There have been 4 finals England – Spain in Champions League history in the seasons 2005/06 (Arsenal – Barca), 2008/09 (Barca – MU), 2010/11 (Barca – MU) and 2017/18 ( Real Madrid – Liverpool). In terms of achievements, England “breathed smoke” from Spain when their clubs lost all of the four confrontations mentioned above.
In 2019, English football made history when contributing all four representatives in the Champions League and Europa League finals. That season, Liverpool met Tottenham in the Champions League, and Chelsea met Arsenal in the Europa League. It was the first time in history that the four finalists of two European Cups were from the same country.
The Stade de France, the stadium that hosted the Champions League final this season, has a charm for Spanish clubs. In the 1999/00 season, Real beat Valencia 3-0 at this stadium, while the 2005/06 season saw Barca’s 2-1 win over Arsenal.
