They are now level with Bayern Munich and Ajax, but while it's said that great teams win it more than once (something which Nottingham Forest supporters no doubt agree with), there are actually more teams who have won it multiple times than those who have won it once.

In all, just 21 teams have won the competition since its inception in 1956 with Inter Milan (three), Benfica, Juventus and Porto (two) added to those mentioned earlier who have won it more than once.

There are some unusual names on the list of one-time winners, but those nine teams are: Celtic, Hamburg, Steaua Bucharest, Marseille, Feyenoord, Aston Villa, PSV Eindhoven, Red Star Belgrade and Borussia Dortmund.
