Real Madrid are the greatest team in the history of the Champions League, but if their hypothetical 'points per game' ratio is worse than rivals Barcelona.
With 13 European titles, either European Cup or Champions Leagues, there's no doubting that Real are the best team in the competition's history, six clear of their closest rivals AC Milan on seven.
If all the teams who'd ever played in the competition were given three points for a win and one for a draw and put into one big table, Los Blancos would still lead the way, however not by quite as much.
Considering Milan have won the title seven times and Liverpool are third on the list with six, it's a surprise to see those two teams ninth and 10th on the list, respectively.
It's partially to do with the fact the two sides have had their own poor spells in recent years and failed to qualify for the competition on occasion, something that Liverpool have go over.
The Reds have been in the two previous finals, winning one and losing one, but won't be going back to the final this year, having already been knocked out of the competition by Atletico Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane will be hoping to add his fourth Champions League title in four seasons as Real manager but even he has a big ask to get into the quarter finals.
The Spanish league leaders lost the first leg of their last 16 clash with Manchester City in Madrid and have to overturn a 2-1 deficit in Manchester, when the Champions League restarts in August.
City could become European champions for the first time and not be allowed to defend the title. Currently they're set to serve a two year ban from UEFA, but they'll find out on Monday if their appeal has worked.
