Which Cities Have More Than One Team?

Welcome to Manchester City Sign

Well, there are three cities that have two teams competing in the 2023/24 Champions League, and these are Manchester, Milan, and Madrid. The UCL must have a fondness for Ms! We will now dive into a bit more detail about these cities.

Manchester – Man City & Man United

Both of our teams from Manchester, Man City and Man United, are previous Champions League winners. City’s first UCL triumph came in 2022/23, in a remarkable year that also saw them win the Premier League and FA Cup, a feat that had only ever previously been done by… (you guessed/knew it) Man United! The Red Devils have won an impressive three Champions League titles, having won the competition in 2007/08, 1998/99 (when they won the treble), and 1967/68.

Milan – AC Milan & Inter Milan

Representing the beautiful city of Milan, we have two of the titans of the Champions League: AC Milan and Inter Milan. Having finished 4th and 3rd respectively in last year’s Serie A, the two San Siro-sharing sides will now be hoping for UCL glory. AC Milan are no stranger to lifting Europe’s most prized trophy, considering that they have won it seven times, although they haven’t done so since 2006/07. Inter, on the other hand, have lifted the Champions League trophy more recently, in 2009/10, but have “only” won it three times in their history.

Madrid – Atletico Madric & Real Madrid

Last but certainly not least, we have the Spanish capital, Madrid. The city’s two teams have wildly different Champions League records. Whilst Real Madrid are serial winners of the UCL, Atletico have never tasted European glory. Los Blancos have won the competition a total of 14 times, putting them seven ahead of any other team. Atletico, on the other hand, have reached the final three times, but have never been able to get over the line – twice losing to Real!
