UEFA Champions League and Europa League continued this week with some great matches lined up for fans to enjoy. The mighty entertained us on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday was set aside for second class teams and they danced well too. Chelsea and Arsenal won 4-0 and 3-0 respectively to book a place in the next round. Today, we want to look at four proud clubs with more wins than five times Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo in UEFA Champions League.
5. Cristiano Ronaldo- 100 UCL Wins
Juventus thrashed Valencia 1-0 in Turin to book their place in the last 16 in UEFA Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo did not score but he was on the winning side once again in Europe.This was his 100th win in 163 matches he has played in the tournament. He has netted 122 goals for his current side, Real Madrid and Manchester United. It is a record that even big clubs like AC Milan, Inter Milan, and his club Juventus cannot boast off in Europe.
4. Manchester United- 117 UCL Wins
Manchester United has already booked their place in the last 16 after a tense clash against Young Boys at Old Trafford. Marouane Fellaini netted a crucial goal in injury time to send them through with a game to spare. The club has now registered 117 UEFA Champions League wins. Cristiano Ronaldo might be able to overtake them soon if they continue struggling to get results in Europe.
3. Bayern Munich- 132 UCL Wins
Bayern Munich booked their place in the last 16 in style with a 5-1 win against Benfica at Allianz Arena on Tuesday night. It was a welcome victory for coach Niko Kovac after several poor results in the Bundesliga. The win takes them to 132 in UEFA Champions League. The German side always does well in Europe which makes it harder for Cristiano Ronaldo to overtake them.
2. Barcelona- 141 UCL Wins
Barcelona defeated Dutch side PSV 2-1 to book their place in the last 16 as group winners. This will be a big season for Ernesto Valverde, especially in UEFA Champions League after the shock elimination by AS Roma in the quarterfinals last season. The victory on Wednesday means they have now won 141 UCL matches in their history. There is no way Cristiano Ronaldo can beat that figure.
1. Real Madrid- 155 UCL Wins
Real Madrid is the only club Cristiano Ronaldo record of wins is not likely to beat. The Portuguese helped the Los Blancos lift 4 UEFA Champions League crowns and several UEFA Super Cups. He scored 105 goals in 101 appearances for the club in Europe alone.The 33-year-old might not be able to reach 155 wins in the tournament given his age. However, nothing is impossible for CR7 if he decides. The evidence is there for all to see.
