6. Portugal – 4 Champions League Titles
Portugal come in at number six with four Champions League trophies.
However, you will have to go back many, many, MANY years to see when a Portuguese team first won the competition.
In 1961, Benfica won Portugal’s first European trophy when they beat FC Barcelona 3-2, and then it was the same team who won Portugal’s second just a year later when they beat another Spanish opponent, this time Real Madrid, 5-3 in the final.
Portugal had to then wait over 20-years until their next European success and that came in 1987 when FC Porto beat Bayern Munich 2-1.
The fourth and final one came in 2004 when Porto once again lifted the trophy after beating AC Monaco 3-0.
5. Netherlands – 6 Champions League Titles
In fifth place it’s Netherlands who have had six Champions League titles over the years with Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven securing the majority of them.
For Netherlands, four of their six success stories came in four consecutive seasons, from 1970 to 1973.
Feyenoord were initial winners in 1970 when they beat Celtic 2-1, and then the following three years were dominated by Ajax.
In 1971, 1972 and 1973 the Dutch side won the tournament after beating Panathinaikos, Juventus and Inter Milan respectively.
After their four wins consecutively, they then had to wait until 1988 for their next European win and that came with PSV Eindhoven beat Benfica.
Their sixth and final success came in 1995 when Ajax won it once again after beating AC Milan.
