The giants of European football are the most recognised clubs in the world and attract fans from all over the world, but their trophy cabinet does not always make them the teams with the most titles on the planet. We take a look at which teams have won the most trophies and where they have been most successful, domestically or internationally. With in mind, Here are the top six, based on the current list of major trophies won, although this changes virtually every season
*TOP 6 clubs with the Highest trophies in Europe 2023
*1. Real Madrid (97 trophies)
Real Madrid has been the dominant force in Spanish football, along with Barcelona, for a century and all. They are also the most successful team in the history of the Champions League, having won it 14 times in all, twice more than their nearest rivals.
Apart from that, their 97 trophies includes 35 league titles, 19 Spanish Cups, 5 Club World Cups, and two Europa Leagues.
*2. Barcelona (90 trophies)
Barcelona may have to settle for second in the all-time list, behind their great rivals, but they are still a highly successful club, having won 90 trophies and one with a unique identity.
League champions 26 times, they have won the Spanish Cup a record 31 times, and although it took them until 1992 to win the Champions League for the first time, they have won it on four occasions subsequently.
In fact, they can boast a clean sweep of European trophies, with three Europa League and four Cup Winners Cup successes under their belt.
* 3, Bayern Munich (81 trophies)
Bayern are the undisputed king of German football. Since the Bundesliga was first contested in 1963 – 1964, they have won the league 32 times. And they also have raised aloft the German Cup 20 times. Nor has their success been domestic – their 81 trophies include 6 Champions League titles, the Cup Winners and UEFA Cups, and two Club World Cups.
*4. Benfica (80 trophies)
Benfica has been a major force in Portuguese football for decades, having won the Primeira Liga on 37 occasions and the Portuguese Cup 30 times. European success has been harder to achieve and their two Champions League titles were won back in the 1960s.
Financial constraints mean they have sometimes been forced to sell some of their better players to clubs in richer leagues.
Still, their domestic achievements mean that there are still 80 pieces of silverware in their trophy cabinet.
*5. FC Porto (79 trophies)
Porto, along with Benfica and Sporting Lisbon, are part of the “Big Three” of Portuguese football, and they are currently just behind the Lisbon club when it comes to trophies, with 79 collected so far in their history.
Arguably their figures are inflated by the 24 Portuguese Super Cups they have won, but the numbers are still impressive – 30 league titles and 18 Portuguese Cups.
Like Benfica, they have won the Champions League twice, but those victories were of more recent vintage – in 1987 and again in 2004 when Jose Mourinho was their manager.
*6. Ajax (76 trophies)
Ajax has won their domestic league, the Eredivisie, more times than any other club in the top ten apart from Bayern Munich. Add to that 20 Dutch Cups, and there is already a lot of silverware in their Amsterdam home, without considering their achievements in Europe, where they have consistently punched above their financial weight.
They have won the Champions League four times and also have a Europa League and Cup Winners Cup to their name.
