Note: In the 1992 and 1993 seasons there were no semi-finals as the finalists qualified via a group stage. The winners (Sampdoria and Barcelona in 1992, Marseille and Milan in 1993) and runners-up (Red Star Belgrade and Sparta Prague in 1992, Rangers and IFK Göteborg in 1993) of the two groups are marked as semi-finalists in the table.

Consecutive appearances[edit]

Winning other trophies[edit]

Three silver trophies on blue plinths in a glass display case.
Manchester United won a treble in 1999: the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup (left to right); the English club also won the 1999 Intercontinental Cup.

See also Treble (association football) and List of association football teams to have won four or more trophies in one season.

Although not an officially recognised achievement, seven clubs have achieved the distinction of winning the Champions League or European Cup, their domestic championship, and their primary domestic cup competition in the same season, known colloquially a "seasonal treble":

Liverpool in 1984 won the English First Division and the European Cup. However, this 'treble' included the Football League Cup rather than the FA Cup.

In addition to this treble, several of these clubs went on to win further cups. However, most of these cups were technically won the following year following the conclusion of regular domestic or international leagues the year before. Also, several domestic cups may not have been extant at the time that equivalent cups were won by clubs of other nations, and in some cases they remain so. Furthermore, there is much variance in the regard with which several cups are taken both over time and between nations. Regardless, the following clubs all won competitions further to the treble mentioned above:

Juventus, Ajax, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Manchester United are also the only teams to have won the original three major UEFA competitions, namely Champions League/European Cup, Cup Winners' Cup, and Europa League/UEFA Cup.[4]

Until the first Europa Conference League final in 2022, Juventus was the first club in association football history to have won all six official UEFA-sanctioned tournaments, a record reached in 1985 and revalided fourteen years latter.[4][5][6][7]

Chelsea became the first club to hold the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League trophies simultaneously by winning the 2011–12 UEFA Champions League and the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League.[8]

Best debuts[edit]

Five clubs managed to win the European Cup on their debut:

Deciding drawn ties[edit]

Play-offs[edit]

Coin toss[edit]

  • The first coin toss occurred in 1957–58, with Wismut Karl Marx Stadt beating Gwardia Warsaw after their play-off was abandoned after 100 minutes due to floodlight power failure.
  • Zürich won a coin toss against Galatasaray in 1963–64 after their play-off match ended 2–2. This was the first time this rule was used for a draw played to completion.
  • The last season to use a coin toss was 1969–70, with Galatasaray beating Spartak Trnava and Celtic beating Benfica, both in the second round. Celtic later progressed to the final.
  • A total of seven European Cup ties were decided by a coin toss, with Galatasaray being the only team to be involved twice, winning one and losing one.

Away goals[edit]

  • The away goals rule was introduced in 1967–68, with Valur beating Jeunesse Esch 4–4 (1–1 at home, 3–3 away) and Benfica beating Glentoran 1–1 (1–1 away, 0–0 at home), both in the first round. Benfica later progressed to the final.
  • In 2002–03, Milan and Inter met in the semi-finals. Sharing the same stadium (San Siro), they drew 0–0 in the first leg and 1–1 in the second. However, Milan were the designated away side in the latter, and thus became the only team to win on "away" goals without having scored a goal away from their own stadium.
  • The quarter-final of the 2020–21 season between previous year's finalists Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain was the last to be decided by the away goals rule before its abolition from the following season.
  • Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Porto are the only teams to have advanced on the away goals rule after extra time:

Advancing past the group stage[edit]

  • Real Madrid hold the record for the most consecutive seasons in which a side have advanced past the group stage, with 25 straight progressions from 1997–98 to 2021–22. During the first seven of these seasons (1997–98 to 2003–04), they reached at least the quarter-finals, winning the tournament three times. After this followed six consecutive seasons (2004–05 to 2009–10) in which they lost in the first knockout round (round of 16). Real Madrid then advanced to eight consecutive semi-finals (2010–11 to 2017–18), winning the tournament four times, before going out in the round of 16 in the 2018–19 and 2019–20 seasons, and the semi-finals in the 2020–21 season. They would again lift the trophy in 2021–22.

Most games played in a group stage[edit]

  • Panathinaikos is the only team that has ever played seven matches in the group stage (instead of the usual six). After Panathinaikos lost 1–0 away to Dynamo Kyiv on matchday one of the 1995–96 group stage, the Ukrainian team was expelled from the competition by UEFA following Spanish referee Antonio Jesús López Nieto reporting he received a bribe attempt from the side. To replace Dynamo Kyiv in the group stage, UEFA promoted their qualifying round rivals Aalborg BK, who were allowed to play a replacement fixture against Panathinaikos in between matchdays three and four. Although this took the total number of group matches played by Panathinaikos to seven, their result against Dynamo Kyiv was annulled.

Consecutive goalscoring[edit]

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain share the record of consecutive goalscoring in Champions League matches, with both sides scoring at least one goal in 34 successive games. Real Madrid's run started with a 1–1 draw in the second leg of their semi-final tie against Barcelona on 3 May 2011. This run continued into the entirety of the next two seasons, with Madrid scoring in all twelve matches of both their 2011–12 and 2012–13 Champions League campaigns. The club then scored in the first nine games of their 2013–14 campaign (six group stage games, both legs of the round of 16 and the first leg of the quarter-finals), with the run coming to an end following a 2–0 away loss against Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of the quarter-finals on 8 April 2014.

Paris Saint-Germain's run started with a 1–1 group stage draw against Arsenal on 13 September 2016. This streak continued with PSG scoring at least once in all 24 matches played over the course of their 2016–17, 2017–18 and 2018–19 Champions League campaigns (including all six group stage games and both legs of the round of 16).

Consecutive home wins[edit]

Bayern Munich hold the record of sixteen consecutive home wins in the Champions League. The club's streak started with a 1–0 group stage win against Manchester City at the Allianz Arena on 17 September 2014. Bayern then won their other two home matches in the group. Following home victories in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, and three home wins in the following season's group stage, Bayern reached a sixteenth successive Champions League victory at the Allianz Arena after beating Arsenal 5–1 in the round of 16 on 15 February 2017. Bayern's run would end in the quarter-finals, following a 1–2 home defeat to Real Madrid on 12 April 2017.[31][32]

Consecutive away wins[edit]

The most consecutive away wins in the Champions League (not including matches played at neutral venues) is seven, achieved on two occasions. Ajax were the first side to reach this number; their run began with a 2–0 group stage win against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu on 22 November 1995. They then defeated Borussia Dortmund at the Westfalenstadion in the quarter-finals and Panathinaikos at the Spyridon Louis in the semi-finals. Ajax's run continued the following season, winning all three away group stage matches, against Auxerre, Rangers and Grasshopper. Their record seventh win came on 19 March 1997, after defeating Atlético Madrid 3–2 at the Vicente Calderón after extra time in the quarter-finals. The streak would end in the following round, as Ajax lost 4–1 to Juventus in the semi-finals at the Stadio delle Alpi on 23 April 1997.

Bayern Munich would go on to equal this record nearly two decades later; their run began with a 3–1 round of 16 victory against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on 19 February 2013, and continued with wins against Juventus at the Juventus Stadium in the quarter-finals and Barcelona at the Camp Nou in the semi-finals. The streak continued the following season, with group stage away wins over Manchester City, Viktoria Plzeň and CSKA Moscow. The record equaling seventh win was achieved when Bayern again defeated Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the round of 16 on 19 February 2014. Their run ended with a 1–1 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United in the first leg of the quarter-finals on 1 April 2014.[31][33]

Consecutive wins[edit]

Bayern Munich (2019–20 and 2020–21) holds the record of 15 consecutive wins in the Champions League. Bayern's run started on 18 September 2019 with a 3–0 win against Red Star Belgrade in their first group stage match, after losing 1–3 against Liverpool in the previous season's round of 16. The run continued in their other five group matches and all five knockout matches, as they defeated Paris Saint-Germain 1–0 in the final.[34] Bayern won the next four matches of the following season's group stage, before their streak ended on 1 December 2020 with a 1–1 draw against Atlético Madrid.

Bayern Munich is also the first club to win all of their matches (without needing extra time) in a Champions League season, winning 11 out of 11 in their successful 2019–20 campaign.[35]

Longest home undefeated run[edit]

The record for the longest unbeaten run at home stands at 43 games and is held by Bayern Munich.
