You can help us decide in this epic team battle where we’re putting 8 of the best Champions League teams against each other.

Manchester United 1998–1999:

This is without a doubt my favorite Machester United team under Alex Ferguson. With almost 600 club games in goal, 129 caps and surprisingly 10 goals, Peter Schmeichel definitely was one of the best goalkeepers in the 90’s, and maybe the best in Manchester United history. The midfield is also something of a revelation, with the one-club players Scholes, Giggs who was the leading players for Man Utd for a decade, and of course the famous and infamous duo in front — Yorke and Cole. I remember seeing those guys as a kid and just thinking wow. Their collaboration was incredible, finding each other blind all over the pitch.

Titles: The first English side to ever win the treble: Premier League, Champions League and the FA Cup.

Key player: Dwight Yorke

Captain: Peter Schmeichel

Manager: Alex Ferguson

Inter Milan 2009–2010:

Back when Mourinho was still the special one, he coached this fantastic Internazionale team. Very solid foundation in the back with an all Argentinian-Brazillian defensive line, where it’s hard to say which was better. This was also a team with Sneijder and Milito at the peak in their career, and as a tactician, this was definitely when Mourinho was at an all-time high. On their way to the final, where they beat Bayern Munich with 2–0, they went through Chelsea, CSKA Moscow and Barcelona, after finishing behind the latter in the group stage.

Titles: Also a treble for this Inter team with Serie A, Champions League and Coppa Italia.

Key Player Samuel Eto’o

Captain: Javier Zanetti

Manager: José Mourinho
