Atletico Madrid will be hoping this years is the season they end their rotten luck in the Champions League after qualifying for the semi-finals – but as things stand Diego Simeone’s men remain one of the best teams to never win the competition.
Atleti will face one of Juventus, Monaco or Real Madrid in the last four after knocking out Leicester City in the quarter-finals, and are aiming to go one better than their two final defeats in 2014 and 2016.
Inspired by our friends Football Daily, we’ve taken a look at some of the best individual sides to never lift the trophy since it was rebranded as the Champions League.
Two English sides make the list, while there are three teams from Spain, two from Germany, two from Italy and one from France.
