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 allowing 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. – Martin Jun 5 '16 at 8:28

Nine teams have won the Champions League unbeaten out of which only four clubs have done this twice:

Liverpool had 6 wins and 3 draws in 1980–81 and 7 wins and 2 draws in 1983–84.
Milan had 5 wins and 4 draws in 1988–89 and 7 wins and 5 draws in 1993–94.
Ajax had 7 wins and 2 draws in 1971–72 and 7 wins and 4 draws in 1994–95.
Manchester United had 5 wins and 6 draws in 1998–99 and 9 wins and 4 draws in 2007–08.

Five 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.
