Bayern Munich 2012-2013:
Jupp Heynckes lead this team to victories in all tournaments only losing a total of 3 matches over the entire season — an amazing feat. Most memorable from this team is definitely the wings, where Robben and Ribéry alike set new standards of how to dribble with the ball, and with offensive backs as good as Alaba and Lahm was at this point, they were pretty much unbeatable. It’s not that they weren’t tested in Champions League, it wasn’t lucky draws all the way through the knockout phase. Arsenal, Juventus and Barcelona were the opponents, and they even managed an aggregate victory of a whopping 7–0 against Barcelona in the semi-final.
Titles: Everything imaginable. Bundesliga, Champions League, DFB-Pokal, DFL-Supercup. They even won the unnoticed Telekom Cup, a pre-season friendly tournament featuring the 4 biggest teams in Germany.
Key Player: Frank Ribéry
Captain: Philipp Lahm
Manager Jupp Heynkes
Real Madrid 2016-2017:
This is the newest team in our battle, but you can’t really get around this Real Madrid team. This team was part of the amazing achievement of winning not two, but three Champions League trophies in a row. No team has ever done that before or since. This team of course evolved around Christiano Ronaldo as it’s number one star, but the whole team is just an abundance of talent stretching all the way to the bench. Luka Modric and Toni Kroos also deserve a mention, because they were the hart of the fast-paced transitions that characterized this Zidane team.
Titles: La Liga, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup.
Key Player: Christiano Ronaldo
Captain: Sergio Ramos
Manager: Zinedine Zidane
