Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 2010: Inter Milan

Answer: Jose Mourinho

This was the first final to be played on a Saturday night. Since matches in European competitions are played midweek, previous finals had traditionally been played on a Wednesday night. UEFA decided to make the switch to capitalise on worldwide television exposure.

Inter Milan defeated Bayern Munich 2-0 to claim their third European Cup and their first since 1965. It was the first time the Italian side had reached the final since 1972. Both teams were looking to complete a treble, having won their respective national league championships and cup competitions.

Bayern had 21 shots on goal to Inter's 11 and had 68% possession, but a perfect counter-attacking strategy saw Argentine striker Diego Milito score one goal in each half against. Interestingly, not one Italian national started the game for Inter, the first time a team had won the competition without starting any players from their home nation. In fact, only three of their starting eleven were of European descent.

This was the second win in the competition for Mourinho who had previously led FC Porto to victory in 2004. Following this game he left Inter to take charge of Real Madrid, but they exited the competition at the semi-final stage in each of his three years in charge before he left for a second spell at Chelsea.
2. 2011: Barcelona

Answer: Pep Guardiola

A repeat of the 2009 final saw Barcelona defeat Manchester United 3-1 at Wembley Stadium in London. Both teams were looking for their fourth win in the competition, with Barcelona previously having won in 1992, 2006 and 2009. United had won their previous titles in 1968, 1999 and 2008. Both teams had won their initial titles at Wembley Stadium.

Barcelona took the lead before Wayne Rooney scoed for Manchester United in the 34th minute to level the score. Despite this, the match was not as close run as the 2009 final which Barcelona had won 2-0. Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson remarked after the game that the 2011 Barcelona team was probably the best footballing side he had come up against as a manager.

This was Pep Guardiola's second win in the competition. He was in charge of the Barcelona team in 2009. In 2010 and 2012 they were defeated at the semi-final stage by eventual winners Inter Milan and Chelsea, respectively. He left Barcelona in 2012 having won 14 of a possible 20 trophies.
3. 2012: Chelsea

Answer: Roberto Di Matteo

Chelsea won their first European Cup against 2010 runners-up Bayern Munich. They also became the first club from London to win the trophy. Bayern thought they had won a close fought game late on when Thomas Muller scored in the 83rd minute, but a Didier Drogba equaliser five minutes later took the game into extra time and then penalties, which Chelsea won 4-3.

Manager Di Matteo had won the Cup Winners' Cup as a player with Chelsea in 1997. He had only been appointed manager of the club in on a interim basis two months earlier when Andre Villas-Boas was dismissed due to poor domestic form. Di Matteo was given the job on a permanent basis following the European Cup win, having also guided Chelsea to FA Cup victory just two weeks before. He could not emulate the same success the following season and was sacked in November 2012 following Chelsea's elimination at the Champions League group stage. Having finished third in the group table, Chelsea qualified for the Europa League and went on to win the competition under Rafael Benitez, who had won the European Cup with Liverpool in 2005.
4. 2013: Bayern Munich

Answer: Jupp Heynckes

Having lost the final in 2010 and 2012, Bayern were keen to make amends against fellow German side Borussia Dortmund. This was the fourth final to feature two teams from the same nation following the finals in 2000 (Spain), 2003 (Italy) and 2008 (England). Bayern won the match 2-1 against the 1997 winners to claim their fifth title and their first since 2001.

This was Jupp Heynckes' second win in the competition, having led Real Madrid to their first victory in 32 years in 1998. Heynckes retired after this match, stating that he had no intention of managing again, but was lured back again in 2017 following the dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti.
5. 2014: Real Madrid

Answer: Carlo Ancelotti

The fifth final to feature two teams from the same nation and the second final, after 2000, to feature two teams from Spain, and the first final to be contested by two teams from the same city. Since winning their ninth title in 2002 Real had been chasing "La Decima", their tenth European Cup win. They would have to do this the hard way against Atletico Madrid, who two weeks earlier had won their first Spanish league championship since 1996. Atletico had also won the Europa League in 2010 and 2012.

A first half goal from Diego Godin had looked to give Atletico victory until Sergio Ramos scored an equaliser three minutes into second half stoppage time to take the game to extra time, where Real took charge, going on to win the match 4-1. Carlo Ancelotti became only the second manager, after Bob Paisley, to win the European Cup three times, following his success with AC Milan in 2003 and 2007.
6. 2015: Barcelona

Answer: Luis Enrique

The 2015 final saw Barcelona face Juventus. As with the 2010 final, both teams entered the final looking to secure a treble, having already won their respective national league championships and national cup competitions. This was also the eight final appearance for both teams, although the teams had never met each other in a final prior to this match. Barcelona went on to win 3-1 to claim their fifth European Cup, and their fourth in 10 years.

This was the first win in the competition for Luis Enrique. As a player, he played for Real Madrid from 1991-1996 before moving to Barcelona where he stayed until 2004. As such, despite the success of both clubs in the Champions League, he was never on the winning side for either team as a player. He did win the Cup Winners' Cup with Barcelona in 1997, however. His three years at Barcelona saw him stabilise the club and bring back some of the success they had lost since the departure of Pep Guardiola in 2012. Like Guardiola, he left the club of his own accord and took a year out before returning to management.
7. 2016: Real Madrid

Answer: Zinedine Zidane

A repeat of the 2014 final saw Real Madrid face city rivals Atletico Madrid. Like in 2014, a closely contested match saw the match finish 1-1 after 90 minutes however, unlike 2014, Atletico managed to hold on and take the match to a penalty shootout. Real would go on to win their 11th title, winning the shootout 5-3.

Zidane was promoted to manager in January 2016 from Real's B team, following he dismissal of Rafael Benitez and became the seventh person to win the European Cup as both a player and a manager, having scored the winning goal for Real in the 2002 final. He also played in the 1997 and 1998 finals for Juventus, but lost both times to Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid respectively.
8. 2017: Real Madrid

Answer: Zinedine Zidane

A dominant display from Real Madrid saw them defeat Juventus 4-1 to claim their 12th title and become the first team since AC Milan in 1989-1990 to win the European Cup back to back; and the first team to do so in the Champions League era. Having led Madrid to the title in 2016, this was Zidane's second win as a manager in his first full season in charge. He also led Madrid to their first Spanish league championship since 2012.

As a player, his transfer from Juventus to Real Madrid in 2001 made him the most expensive player in the world until Cristiano Ronaldo made the move from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009. As a player, Zidane won the 1998 FIFA World Cup and 2000 UEFA European Cup with France and reached the 2006 FIFA World Cup Final, where, in his final match before retiring from playing, he was dramatically sent off after head-butting Italy's Marco Materazzi. Italy went on to win the match on penalties.
9. 2018: Real Madrid

Answer: Zinedine Zidane

Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 to win the cup for the third consecutive year, becoming the first team since Bayern Munich in the 1970s to do so, and the first team to achieve this feat in the Champions League era.

Despite this success, Zidane left the club only days following the victory and was followed out of the club later that summer by the club's star player Cristiano Ronaldo, who was transferred to Italian side Juventus. Having gone to Madrid from Manchester United in 2009 for what was then a world record transfer fee, Ronaldo went on to score 311 goals in 292 games for Madrid and would add four Champions League winners' medals to his 2008 victory with Manchester United.
10. 2019: Liverpool

Answer: Jurgen Klopp

The 2019 final in Madrid was the seventh final to feature two teams from the same nation, and the second to feature two teams from England, the first being in 2008. Liverpool won the European Cup/Champions League for the sixth time with a 2-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur, who were playing in the final of the compensation for the first time.

Jurgen klopp won the competition for the first time as manager, having previously led Liverpool to the final in 2018 and Borussia Dortmund in 2013, losing out to Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively.
