British Clubs in the Champions League

British Clubs have been synonymous with the Champions League and the orginal format of the European Cup before it. In Liverpool they have the third most successful club side in the competition's history and the result of the 1985 final versus Juventus resulted on British Clubs being banned from European Club competitions for the remainder of the eighties. On a more positive note however the English Clubs are currently the dominant force in the Champions League having had at least one representative of the Premier League contesting the final in the last five seasons.
