While Germany and Spain are the most successful nations in UEFA European Championship history, their dominance extends beyond their three titles apiece. The two countries also hold sway at the top of another table, with their heavyweight clubs having boasted a long list of EURO winners at the time of their trophy success.

Pride of place belongs to Bayern München, who picked up their 19th champion when Renato Sanches helped Portugal win UEFA EURO 2016. Real Madrid and Barcelona are second and third in the rankings, while Juventus moved up into fourth after four of their players featured in Italy's UEFA EURO 2020-winning squad.

Bayern's place at the top of the standings can be largely explained by two tournaments. Eight of the club's players – including Oliver Kahn, Jürgen Klinsmann, Thomas Helmer and Mario Basler – were part of Germany's triumphant EURO '96 squad, while six more featured in the West Germany delegation that won in 1972.

Joint-fifth, Bordeaux owe their elevated position to having contributed five members of France's squad in 1984 – not least Alain Giresse and Jean Tigana – plus four more in 2000. As for Slovan Bratislava, they owe their lofty spot entirely to Czechoslovakia's 1976 triumph.

The most-represented clubs whose home nation has never lifted the trophy is Chelsea. Didier Deschamps, Marcel Desailly and Frank Lebœuf were Blues players when they won with France in 2000, while Fernando Torres and Juan Mata clinched UEFA EURO 2012 with Spain. Winners with Italy at EURO 2020, Jorginho and Emerson Palmeiri moved their total on to seven.

Curiously, Manchester United have had just two EURO winners, both of them goalkeepers: Peter Schmeichel with Denmark in 1992, and Fabien Barthez with France in 2000.

Every team that has won the UEFA Champions League also has at least one EURO winner. However, European Cup-era winners Celtic, Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa, Steaua Bucureşti and Crvena zvezda have none.
