This would represent the first group stage exit of Madrid at the group stage phase of European competition, having progressed from all 24 groups.

The last time the club were not in the Champions League knockout stages was the 1996/97 campaign – when they failed to qualify for the competition, and refused to participate in the Intertoto Cup.
