Chelsea celebrate at full time in Munich
 There is a brand-new name on the UEFA Champions League trophy after Chelsea FC’s victory against FC Bayern München made them the first maiden winners since Borussia Dortmund’s triumph 15 years ago.

Chelsea are the tenth club to have won the trophy once and the 22nd overall in the pantheon of European Cup winners. In beating Bayern the Londoners became the first new winners of the trophy since the 1990s when, coincidentally, Munich provided the stage for the triumphs of Olympique de Marseille (1993) and Dortmund (1997) – albeit at the Olympiastadion, Bayern’s former home.

The 1980s were a particularly fruitful decade for teams to claim their sole European Cup success with Aston Villa FC (1982), Hamburger SV (1983), FC Steaua Bucureşti (1986) and PSV Eindhoven (1988) all triumphant. FK Crvena zvezda followed suit in 1991.

Celtic FC got their hands on the trophy back in 1967 and reached the final again three years later, but lost out to Feyenoord who therefore secured their only success.
