Cities with Multiple Teams

We will now dive deeper into some of cities with multiple teams that qualified for the 2022/23 Champions League.

London – Spurs & Chelsea

First up, we have London, one of the biggest and most iconic cities in the world. The two London teams who qualified are Tottenham and Chelsea, with the Blues being the only team in England’s capital to have won the UCL. The west London giants have done so on two occasions: 2011/12 and 2020/21. Spurs, on the other hand, had their best performance in the competition in 2018/19, when they reached the final.

Milan – AC Milan & Inter

Next, we have the fashion capital of Italy, Milan, which is home to two legendary football teams: AC Milan and Inter. Both have won the competition multiple times, with the seven UCL trophies won by AC Milan placing them second on the all-time list behind Real Madrid. Inter, on the other hand, have three UCL titles to their name, with the most recent of these coming in 2009/10.

Lisbon – Benfica & Sporting CP

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and home to two of the country’s most successful football teams. Benfica, who have won 86 major trophies, are Portugal’s most decorated side, and managed to win the UCL back-to-back in 1960/61 and 1961/62. Sporting CP, on the other hand, have never won the Champions League, but still have a very impressive 54 major honours in their trophy cabinet!

Glasgow – Celtic & Rangers

In Glasgow, the two giants of Scottish football, Celtic and Rangers, both qualified for the 22/23 Champions League. Celtic’s only UCL triumph came back in 1966/67, whilst Rangers’ best performance in the competition came way back in 1959/60, when they reached the semis.

Madrid – Real Madrid & Atletico Madrid

Finally, we have Madrid, home to the undisputed kings of the Champions League: Real Madrid. Los Blancos have won the UCL a record 14 times, double the tally of AC Milan in second, showing just how dominant they have been in the competition over the years. Their local rivals, Atletico Madrid, have not quite had the same success, as they have never won the tournament.
