With the Champions League finals coming this weekend, I was wondering if any team has ever won the Champions League or the European Cup without ever losing a game in both the Qualification rounds and Elimination rounds.

If it is a common occurrence, has any team ever won without conceding a goal, or accomplished that feat twice in a row?

  • BTW I thought that the term clean sheet is more frequently used to winning a match without conceding a goal. See Wikipedia and Wiktionary.

Ten teams have won the European Cup/Champions League unbeaten, of which four have achieved this twice:

The other clubs have achieved it on one occasion:

  • Inter Milan had 7 wins and 2 draws in 1963–64.
  • Nottingham Forest had 6 wins and 3 draws in 1978–79.
  • Red Star Belgrade had 5 wins and 4 draws in 1990–91.
  • Marseille had 7 wins and 4 draws in 1992–93.
  • Barcelona had 9 wins and 4 draws in 2005–06.
  • Bayern Munich had 11 wins and 0 draws in 2019–20.
