Ahead of Sunday’s conclusion to the longest ever Champions League season, newly-fledged football broadcasters Amazon Prime have named their competition’s greatest ever XI.
There are many footballers around the world who would even prefer to lift ‘Big Ears’ than the FIFA World Cup and this year’s final will pit Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich up against each other.
It’s something of a clash of the ages with Bayern having won the competition five times in their history, while their French opponents, founded in 1970, are entering their first ever final.
Only Ronaldo and Messi boast a higher goal tally in Europe’s premier competition with Raul amassing an impressive 71, including strikes in the 2000 and 2002 finals respectively.
Messi has been crowned a European champion four times, scoring in two finals, while also boasting 115 goals as the competition’s second highest scorer of all time.
It’s not a Champions League all-time XI without the greatest player in the competition’s history. Ronaldo is a five-time champion across spells with Manchester United and Real Madrid as well as being the leading scorer in the tournament’s history with a mind-blowing 130 strikes. Credit: Amazon.
