REAL MADRID are the most-successful team in Champion League history – that is a well-known fact.
The Spanish giants have won 13 European titles in their glittering history – more than any other club.
Real Madrid have won more points in the CL than any other team, as well as bagging the most trophies[/caption]
A lot more than any other club… AC Milan sit second with seven trophies, with Liverpool and Bayern Munich next on six apiece.
Los Blancos enjoyed a purple patch in the 2010s, winning ‘Ol’ Big Ears’ in 2014, as well as three in a row between 2016 and 2018.
But as well as winning the most Champions League trophies, Real Madrid would also be top of the charts in terms of points.
Once the group stages are over, the remaining 16 teams all go into a straight knockout situation – but what if points were awarded like in the early round?
In that case, Real Madrid are yet again runaway leaders with a staggering 863 points from their 441 Champions League games.
To average nearly two points per game against Europe’s best clubs – including knockout rounds against the creme de la creme is exceptional.
And over 400 matches is no small sample size, either…
No one comes close, with reigning champions Bayern Munich in second on just 686 points from 350 games.
