History of UEFA Champions League
First UEFA Champions League was held in 1955/56 (Under the name of UEFA Champions Cup, not League) and Real Madrid C.F. managed to win it. In addition, Real Madrid managed to win it 5 times in a row. After several years, they changed name of a tournament and called that UEFA Champions League. After that, no one ever could win that title twice in a row, but again Real Madrid C.F managed to do it and they won 3 in a row 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18. They won 4 titles in 5 years.
Player with the most goals is Cristiano Ronaldo with 126 goals (Formal Real Madrid C.F. player, now he plays for Juventus F.C.)
Me and Champions League
First time when I watched UEFA Champions League was in 2010, I was 9 years old. I was fan of Bayern Munich and they managed to go to the Final, but Inter won final 2-0, Diego Milito scored 2 goals in the final. In 2011, Barcelona won the UCL title, they beat Manchester United in the final, 3-1.
I forgot to mention that after Bayern Munich lost the final, I became fan of Real Madrid C.F. in 2012 Chelsea won the final, they beat Bayern Munich 1-1 Full time (3-4 in penalties). in 2013 Bayern Munich won the final, they beat Borrusia Dortmund in the final 2-1 with last minute goal by Arien Robben. In 2014 started domination of Spanish Clubs. Real Madrid won the final against Athletico Madrid 4-1 in Extra Time. Real Madrid was losing the match, but Sergio Ramos scored equalizer for Real Madrid in the last minutes of the match. 2015 Barcelona managed to win it. They won 3-1 against Juventus in the final. 2016 was year of Real Madrid. They won final against Athletico Madrid again, 1-1 Full Time (5-3 in penalties). In 2017 Real Madrid won 4-1 against Juventus in the final. In 2018 Real Madrid won again against Liverpool 3-1. And 2019 was perfect year for English teams, because both teams in final was from English (In the final of Europa League, both teams were from LONDON!!!). Liverpool won 2-0 against Tottenham Hotspur.
Season 2018/19 of Champions League.
I think that this tournament was one of the best tournament ever! There were so many comebacks in knockout stage and the champion, Liverpool almost failed to qualify group stage! Liverpool lost 3-0 against Barcelona first match in Barcelona, but they managed to win 4-0 (aggregate 4-3). It was sensational, but even worse happened for Tottenham Hotspur. They lost first match 1-0 in London (home) against Ajax Amsterdam and they were losing the match in Amsterdam (away) too 2-0, but in the second half of that match Lucas Moura managed to score hat-trick (3 goals) and Tottenham Hotspur qualified into the final because they scored more goal in the away match (Rule of UCL).
