Of the 30 players who registered the Real Madrid a la Champions Leaguetwo regular players in Carlo Ancelotti’s calls will not add the title: Isco Alarcón and Andriy Lunin will not be able to count this cup in their personal record.

Isco had the opportunity to become one of the few players in football history to win five Champions Leagues. A select group that included the Madrid players who won the five European Cups in a row: Alfredo Di Stéfano, Héctor Rial, José María Zárraga, Marcos Alonso, Rafael Lesmes and Juanito Alonso.

Although adding only the Champions League, after the format change, only Cristiano Ronaldo had five: four with Madrid and one with Manchester United.

This Saturday Cristiano was joined after winning the fourteenth Champions League: Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Dani Carvajal, Marcelo, Modrić and Nacho.

Isco will not be able to access that group, as he did not play a single minute in the Champions League. The player receives the medal from him, but for UEFA statistical purposes the player will not add the Champions League for the 2021-22 season to his record.

It clearly specifies it in the statistics it produces in his web page when he points out that the winners are those “players who have played in the winning team of the UEFA Champions League. Substitutes without minutes or unused squad players do not count.”

In the UEFA Statistical Book Chelsea in the 2020-21 season did not add the Champions League to Willy Caballero.

In 2014-2015 Barcelona did not add the Champions League to Claudio Bravo, Thomas Vermaelen and Douglas Pereira.
