Runner-Up: Manchester United (England)

Result: 3:1


A time where Barcelona was cruising along every team in Europe. They were the total power of European and World football. This game was the fourth title that Barcelona won in this competition. This was a game that was played at Wembley Stadium in England. Even thought the British club was playing at home field advantage, they couldn't come up with the win. Barcelona was able to win 3:1. The total attendance was 88,000 spectators.

Champion: Bayern Munich (Germany)

Runner-Up: Borussia Dortmund (Germany)

Result:2:1


This was the fourth final game that had two teams from the same country. We have already seen two teams from Italy, Spain, and England to play against each other in the final, now it was time for the Germans to join them as well. This game was a very interesting game, in which either teams should have won the game, because both teams played amazing. This was only the second time that Borussia Dortmund played in the final, previously won in the 1997 season. This was Bayern Munich's fifth Champions League title. This game ended in a 2:1 win for Bayern. This game was played at Wembley Stadium in front of 87,000 fans.
