How have Manchester United fared in the UEFA Champions League era?
Manchester United will face Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 on February 24 at the Vicente Calderon stadium in Madrid, Spain.
The three-time champions qualified from Group F on top. They qualified with 11 points from six matches. They are currently unbeaten in their last four Champions League matches where they have won three.
The Red Devils are the second most successful English club in the Champions League, winning it three times. Only Liverpool have won more titles (six) than Manchester United when it comes to English clubs.
While their first title came when the tournament was named the European Cup (1967-68), the Red Devils won it twice (1998/99, 2007/08) after the competition was renamed the League of champions in 1992. In fact, they were the first Englishman to win the European Cup. Man United were also the first English club to enter the competition when it debuted in 1957.
Now let’s see how they have fared in Europe’s elite club competition since 1992.
In its current form – the Champions League – Manchester United first entered the tournament in 1993-94. So far in the Champions League, they have played 25 times including the current 2021-22 season.
