Winning a treble is one of the biggest achievements in club football. It involves a football club winning its domestic league, its major domestic cup, and the UEFA Champions League. This achievement has been rare in the history of football due to its difficulty and this is why only seven teams have achieved the feat.
Interestingly, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have won a treble twice in their history. Bayern Munich is the last team to win a treble in Europe. In the 2019/20 season, the German Bundesliga side won the Champions League, the German Bundesliga, and the DFB Pokal. They had achieved the feat in the 2012/13 season under the management of Jupp Heynckes.
Barcelona won the treble for the first time in their history under the management of Pep Guardiola in 2008/09. The Catalans were a dominant force in Europe as they won the Spanish La Liga, Copa Del Rey, and the Champions League, beating Manchester United in the final.
In the 2014/15 season, Barcelona once again won the treble after winning the Spanish La Liga, the Copa Del Rey, and the Champions League after a 3-1 win against Juventus in the final. Luis Enrique was the man at the helm at the time.
Manchester United is the only English Premier League team to have won a treble. The Red Devils achieved the seemingly impossible in the 1998/99 season when they won the English Premier League, the FA Cup, and the Champions League. The Champions League final of that season happens to be one of the most historical finals in the history of the competition as the Red Devils came from a goal down to win 2-1 in stoppage time.
Inter Milan, Ajax, PSV Eindhoven, and Celtic are the other football clubs that have won the treble in the history of European football.
