Paris, Berlin, Rome. Three of the biggest cities in Europe, all of them home to great cultural landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Brandenburg Gate and the Colosseum.
But what else do they have in common?
Well, all three are capitals of great footballing nations, France, Germany and Italy have won together 10 World Cup and 6 European Championships, while clubs from these countries have conquered the UEFA Champions League on 20 occasions.
Still can’t figure out where I’m going with this?
Well, the 3 capital cities share the same infamous detail: no football club from Paris, Berlin or Rome has ever won the UEFA Champions League. While, London was also on this inglorious list until Chelsea saved the English capital’s honour in 2012, other less populous and less glamorous European capitals such as Madrid, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Bucharest or Belgrade have hosted clubs that became European Champions.
