The Champions League is the biggest club competition in soccer. Launched in 1955 as the European Cup, it has been held on an annual basis ever since.

Until 1992, the European Cup was a straight knockout tournament that featured only the champions of domestic leagues. It underwent a rebrand in 1992, becoming known as the Champions League. A year earlier, a group stage had been introduced for the first time, although it was originally used as the last phase before the final.

The Champions League is the pinnacle of the European club game. The World Cup might still have more prestige, but the Champions League is widely considered to be home to the highest-quality soccer on the planet.

Who Will Win the Champions League 2021?

Manchester City are the favorites to win the Champions League. They beat Borussia Monchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund, and Paris Saint-Germain to book their place in the final for the first time in the club’s history.

Pep Guardiola, their manager, has won the Champions League twice with Barcelona. 2021 final is the first he has reached since leaving the Camp Nou nine years ago.

Chelsea are the underdogs to win the Champions League. They beat Atletico Madrid, Porto, and Real Madrid to qualify for the final for the second time in the club’s history. Their previous triumph was in 2012 when they beat Bayern Munich in the final.

Thomas Tuchel, their manager, was in charge of Paris Saint-Germain in the 2020 Champions League final.

Who Were the Champions League Winners Last Year?

Bayern Munich were the Champions League winner last year. They overcame Chelsea, Barcelona, and Lyon to reach the final, which was held in Lisbon.

Bayern beat Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in an empty stadium due to the coronavirus pandemic. PSG had knocked out Borussia Dortmund, Atalanta and RB Leipzig to reach their first ever final.

Kingsley Coman, a World Cup winner with France and former PSG player, scored the winning goal in the 59th minute.

Which Team Has Won the Champions League the Most Times?

Club and Number of Wins Most Recent Triumph
Real Madrid – 13 2018
AC Milan – 7 2007
Liverpool – 6 2019
Bayern Munich – 6 2020
Barcelona – 5 2015
Ajax – 4 1995
Manchester United – 3 2008
Inter – 3 2010
Juventus – 2 1996
Porto – 2 2004
Benfica – 2 1962
Nottingham Forest – 2 1980

Real Madrid are the most successful team in the history of the European Cup/Champions League. The Spanish giants dominated the early years of the competition, triumphing five years on the bounce between 1956 and 1960.

AC Milan are second on the list with seven successes, followed by Bayern Munich and Liverpool on six apiece. A total of 22 clubs from 10 countries have won the European Cup/Champions League.

England has provided the largest number of individual winners, with five clubs having triumphed, but the might of Real Madrid means Spain has supplied the most victors with 18. Manchester City have the chance to become the first new winners since Chelsea, who they will face in Istanbul on May 29, in 2012.

Juventus have finished as runners-up more often than any other team, with seven defeats in the final. Atletico Madrid have reached three finals without ever lifting the trophy. Nottingham Forest and Porto are the only clubs to have a 100 percent record in the final after competing in more than one of them.
