Man Utd, consisting of a side that included David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville, staged a brilliant comeback in the closing stages of the game with the help of 'super subs' Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Their next Champions League trophy came in 1999 in the epic final against Bayern Munich at Barcelona's home of Camp Nou. United reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup in 1984–85, but this would be their last contribution to European football for half a decade; the subsequent Heysel Stadium disaster at the European Cup final, in which rioting by Liverpool fans resulted in the death of 39 spectators and led to a ban on all English clubs in European competitions which would not be lifted in 1990. They finally ended a 31-year wait for a second European Cup in 1999 when stoppage-time goals from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjær gave them a 2–1 win over Bayern Munich in the final in Barcelona. The Poles had come to be considered one of the better sides in the last eight, and they were able to come away with a 1–0 win in the second leg, but it was not enough to prevent United from progressing to a semi-final tie with Real Madrid. Following the retirement of Sir Matt Busby as manager at the end of the 1968–69 season, United entered a barren period that culminated in relegation to the Second Division in 1974. The Red Devils have been a force to be reckoned with over the past few decades, but what is their record in Europe? The UEFA Champions League is the ultimate club competition in European football and Manchester United have won the trophy three times. United’s draw in Belgrade and subsequent semi-final defeat against AC Milan were overshadowed by the tragic death of eight United players. With three Champions League trophies, they are still two titles behind that of northern England rivals Liverpool, who have won the competition five times (a record for an English side). Half an hour later, after inspection by the airport's engineers, the plane was given clearance for another take-off attempt. United achieved a famous victory over Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the 1983–84 European Cup Winners' Cup, winning the second leg 3–0 at Old Trafford after being beaten 2–0 in Spain in the first leg, made all the more impressive by the fact that Barcelona's team contained Diego Maradona, rated by many as the best footballer in the world at the time. The second leg was equally robust, but United took control of the tie with goals from John Aston and George Best. A long run in the European Cup followed, including wins over Borussia Dortmund and Athletic Bilbao and culminating with a semi-final tie against Real Madrid.

The match finished as a 10–0 win for Manchester United, a result that still stands as the club's record win in all competitions. We’ll send official updates direct from the club. After going down 2–1 in Italy to Roma in the quarter-final first leg,[8] they triumphed 7–1 in the second leg to reach the semi-finals for the first time in five years. Sir Alex Ferguson had finally emulated the achievement of Sir Matt Busby. In honour of those who died, UEFA offered United a berth in the 1958–59 European Cup, drawing them against BSC Young Boys in the preliminary round, but the Football League denied United entry to the competition as they had not won the Football League the previous season after their league campaign crumbled in the aftermath of the disaster. 1954–55 Football League winners Chelsea had been denied the opportunity to take part in the inaugural European Cup by The Football League's chairman Alan Hardaker, who feared that European football would damage the integrity of the English game. Another semi-final in 1965/66 was followed by the club's first European Cup success in 1967/68 when goals from Bobby Charlton (two), George Best and Brian Kidd at Wembley gave England its first European Cup winning side against Benfica.

United's 1–0 win in the first leg at Old Trafford was all that separated the sides after a 3–3 draw at the Bernabéu, setting up a meeting with Benfica in the final at Wembley Stadium. Sarajevo were only able to pull back one goal and United went through to the quarter-finals, where they were drawn against Polish side Górnik Zabrze. They have been the best English team on home soil for the better part of the last couple of decades, but are they the most successful club in England overall?
