Real Madrid emerged victorious in 2021-22, with the Liga giants completing a memorable European campaign by edging out Liverpool 1-0 in the final courtesy of a solitary strike from Vinicius Junior.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side did not make life easy for themselves, with stirring fightbacks required against Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City in the knockout stages.

Club captain Karim Benzema stepped up in times of need for the Blancos, with the France international striker netting hat-tricks in heavyweight encounters with PSG and Chelsea.

He finished a memorable campaign with 15 goals to his name, with that return enough to edge out Robert Lewandowski – who hit 13 for Bayern Munich – and Sebastien Haller – who managed 11 efforts for Ajax.
