The English giants have won just one UEFA Champions League trophy in 2008 and since then, they have become more of a fallen giant in Europe.

Reaching the finals thrice and losing to Barcelona in both 2009 and 2011.

Barcelona are one of the most successful teams of the 21st century, thanks to their brilliance in the Champions League as well. The Blaugrana outfit have won the competition on four occasions (2006, 2009, 2011, 2015), while they also won the last edition of the European Cup in 1992. However, it is no surprise that their most successful years have come over the last 15 years. The La Masia graduates, consisting of Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Messi, Sergio Busquets, and several others, were at the epicenter of it.

Bayern Munich have arguably been the most consistent side in the Champions League over the last 30 years. The German side have always relied on the brilliance of their squad rather than depending on individual quality. The reigning Bundesliga champions have won the tournament on three occasions (2001, 2013, 2020) in the UCL era. Thanks to strikers like Alexander Zickler, Mario Gomez, Luca Toni, Robert Lewandowski, and many more, Bayern has achieved a lot of success over the last three decades.

1. Real Madrid

Matches: 237

Goals: 500

Real Madrid are European royalty and hold the record for the highest number of UEFA Champions League titles, winning 13 trophies. But one of the most impressive things about Los Blancos is their mentality in the competition and their willingness to keep the game alive in the most vulnerable situations.

Their ability to produce sensational comebacks, coupled with masterful goal-scorers like Raul, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo, is an integral reason behind their success. The Portuguese is the highest goal-scorer (140) in the UCL and scored a lot of those strikes during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.
