Looking to become the first side to ever defend their crown in the Champions League, Real Madrid go into the final four seemingly the clear favourites having overcome Bayern Munich in the quarter-final with the help of some questionable refereeing at the Bernabeu.
None of their competitors at this stage of the competition can boast the quality that is available to Zinedine Zidane in his squad, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos among the best in the game in their individual positions.
Having led La Liga for much of the season, belief has returned to Madrid as they have now gone over a year without defeat in the competition, since they fell to Wolfsburg in the first leg of their quarter final, before mounting a second leg comeback last season.
However, it is notoriously difficult to win the competition for two consecutive seasons and in their city rivals, they face a tough rival. Having drawn at the Bernabeu when the two sides met earlier this month, it will take all of their quality and strength to reach the final and become the first side to retain their title.
