The Champions League has a new winner after Bayern Munich defeated Paris Saint-Germain in the finals in Lisbon.
The Bundesliga side captured their sixth title in as many years equaling Liverpool’s record with the same number of wins.
However, Real Madrid are still on the perch with a remarkable 13 wins in the elite competition with AC Milan who last won the tournament 13 years ago coming second with seven trophies.
For any top European team to beat Real Madrid’s record would be difficult with the past decade producing just four different winners.
Los Blancos had a fair share of titles won with Carlo Ancelotti winning the tournament in 2013-14 and Zinedine Zidane capturing it in three straight years during 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns respectively.
Other teams that won it the last ten years are Inter Milan (2009-10), Barcelona (2010-11, 2014-15), Chelsea 2011-12, Bayern (2012-13), and Liverpool in the 2018-19 campaign.
Bayern and Liverpool are ranked in third and fourth position while Barca hold the fifth position with five wins.
Ajax who last the trophy in the 1994-95 season are sixth with four wins and Inter are seventh with three wins with Jose Mourinho winning the title for them in 2009-10.
Manchester United also have three wins under their belts and are tied with Inter while Juventus, Benfica, Nottingham Forest and FC Porto are equal with two trophies each.
Porto last picked up the title in 2003-04 with the help of Mourinho while Juve’s last silverware was in 1995-96 season and have missed out in four finals since then.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Jurgen Klopp has stated that his former rivals Bayern Munich were lucky to have won this season’s Champions League.
The Bavarians defeated Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 to clinch their sixth European title and also completed a treble having won the league and Cup double.
Though Klopp gave credit to his fellow countryman Hansi Flick for his historic feat but added that Bayern benefitted for the rescheduling of matches after the three-months break.
