Sergio Ramos – an absolute record among the Spaniards in the finals
It was the 25th showdown 32-year-old captain of real Madrid for club and country, or 30th of the final, if we take into account the system of draw of the Supercup of Spain. Only Bernd Schuster decided to leave him out of the lineup for one of the super bowls. 29 in all other matches the centre-back played. On Saturday, December 22, Ramos broke the record for a midfielder of Barcelona, his namesake, Sergio Busquets among the Spaniards, who spent much playing time in such games (2563).

The only current squad “butter” who has played every 21 final. Ramos scored in 2 Champions League finals, Club world Cup and the European super Cup. Incredibly for a Central defender! NONE of the defenders are anywhere close to this achievement. Overall only 8 players differed in 2 finals of the Intercontinental Cup/Club world Cup. Sergio – the only defender in this list.
Real first in the history of the who 3 times in a row and 4 overall, won the Club world Cup
First one three times in a row reached the final of the world Cup among clubs, and even became the first who won the tournament 3rd year in a row. Even if you consider the predecessor of the Club world Cup, Intercontinental Cup, this achievement should not obey any command in the history of football. Real was the unanimous king Mundialito, beating Barcelona on 1 trophy purely in the tournament’s current format. You could write that improving such a record will not be anyone else. However, FIFA is preparing reform of the CSF, so it is possible that soon after winning the tournament from Europe will battle 1 club as it is now, so the chance to break the record will rise.
Real Madrid has not lost a single match in the history Mundialito, plus more finals

Previously passed this way Louis Cubilla (Penarol and Nacional (Uruguay) Olimpia and Paraguay), Juan Mujica (with the same Nacional), Carlo Ancelotti (twice with Milan and once with real Madrid) and Zinedine Zidane (Juventus and real Madrid three times). Interestingly, the Argentine came 4 minutes in 2002, it is Zidane in the composition of Madrid.
Marcos Llorente also became only the 3rd in history of the tournament the Spaniard, who won the prize for best player of the final. In his 71st match for the club scored the first goal. Its predecessors – the real legend of real Madrid Raul Gonzalez (1998) and Sergio Ramos (2004).
Toni Kroos is a unique record CoES
The German midfielder became the first person in history who was club champion 5 times. All thanks to the victory with Bayern Munich in 2013, and the summer departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, who also had 4 trophy before Saturday’s final. Achievements of the Portuguese repeated Marcelo, Modric, bale, Ramos, Carvajal, ISCO, Benzema and Varane.
Spain – a record number of world titles among the clubs, real top titles

The only exception is Manchester United in 2017 and won the LE. So Spain (11) ahead of Brazil (10) titles, the club world Champions.
Real have won 28 titles in the international arena. Madrid increased its absolute historical advantage, because the nearest competitor (al-Ahly) 24 trophy. The “kings” 7 club titles in the world, Milan is already behind in 3.
Luka Modric scored his first international goal in the final
Unbelievable, but true. The conquest of the Golden ball-2018 and all the major individual awards for the year inspired Luka Modric to do what he never did. The Croatian midfielder scored the first goal in the tournament final for real Madrid. Starting in 2015, the holder of the GP annually resouses scored in the match of the Club world Cup.

Thanks to 100 percent Implementation of the Madrid Europe came close to repeating the achievement: following victory in the Club world Cup will be the 7th. Given that the Europeans have won 11 of their last 12 finals (only Chelsea lost Korintiansu for KCHM-2012), the record can fall in a year. But in overall Europe is pulling away is a 32 vs 26 trophies in South America.
