Juventus fifth in all-time CL rankings

UEFA released the all-time Champions League standings since 1993 and Juventus are the top Italian side, in fifth place overall, with Milan in ninth.

The ranking awards two points for a win and one for a draw, which is the standard procedure in calculating club/association coefficients.

Barcelona come in second with 351, with German giants Bayern Munich in third with 317 points.

Manchester United are in fourth place with 292 points, while the top Serie A club Juve are in fifth with 235.

Following them are Arsenal (207), Porto (206), Chelsea (199), Milan are in ninth with 197 points even though they haven’t featured in the competition since the 2013-2014 season.

French club Olympique Lyonnais round off the top 10 with 142, while Liverpool, who reached their second final in a row last night, are in 11th spot with 140, eight points more than Inter in 12th.

The other Italian clubs on the list are as follows: Roma in 18th with 97 points, Lazio 40th on 45 points, Napoli are in 46th with 37 points won over just five seasons in Europe’s top competition.

Fiorentina comes in 49th position with 30 points, while Parma are way back in 89th with the seven points they picked up in their one and only group stage appearance in the 1997-1998 season.

Udinese rounds off the list for Serie A side in 99th place with just five points from their group stage debut in the 2005-2006 edition.
