10 Biggest Champions League Wins

After Bayern Munich’s huge 7-2 win over Tottenham in the Champions League this week, we thought we’d have a look at the biggest victories in Champions League history.

10. Barcelona 7-0 Celtic - 2016

For gameweek one of their 2016/17 Champions League campaign, Celtic faced a trip to the Camp Nou and despite hardly anybody thinking Celtic would get anything from the game, nobody thought it would go as bad as it did.

A goal from Lionel Messi after just three minutes was an appropriate start to what would be a magical Barcelona performance, as the goalscoring phenom bagged two more by the 60th minute.

More goals would flood in from Luis Suarez and Neymar, plus a fabulous volley Andres Iniesta to seal a 7-0 win for Barcelona and an embarrassing defeat for Celtic.

9. Bayern Munich 7-0 Shakhtar Donetsk - 2015

In their third appearance in the Champions League round of 16, Shakhtar Donetsk travelled to Bayern Munich and after a 0-0 draw in Ukraine, they club had a chance to reach the quater-finals.

However, Shakhtar’s hopes were crushed after three minutes when a Thomas Muller penalty put the German giant's ahead with Jerome Boateng putting the tie to bed with Bayern’s second after 34 minutes.

The Bavarians didn’t slow down in the second half with goals from Franck Ribery, Holger Badstuber, Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze, as well as a second from Thomas Muller to hand Bayern an emphatic 7-0 win over Shakhtar.

8. Bate Borisov 0-7 Shakhtar Donetsk - 2014

The season before their embarrassing exit to Bayern Munich, Shakhtar Donetsk recorded their own incredible win in when they went to Belarus to face Bate Borisov in the 14/15 Champions League group stage. The game was dominated by Brazilians with Luiz Adriano scoring 5 for Shakhtar as well as a goal for Alex Teixeira and Douglas Costa to give Shakhtar a 7-0 win in Belarus.

7. Bayern Munich 7-0 Basel - 2012

After finishing above Manchester United in the 2011/12 group stage, Basel were drawn against Bayern in the round of 16 and after a 1-0 win in Switzerland, the Swiss giants had a chance of qualifying for the Champions League quarter-finals for their first time.

Arjen Robben’s opener took Bayern level on aggregate and a goal from Thomas Muller put the Bundesliga side ahead not long after.

The game was dominated by Mario Gomez who scored four goals that night in a season where Bayern would reach the final, only to lose on home soil to Chelsea on penalties.

6. Valencia 7-0 Genk - 2011

For the second Spanish involvement in this list, we have Valencia when they faced Genk in a game they needed to win with both Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen also being in their group.

A Roberto Soldado first half hat-trick helped keep Valencia in the race for a round of 16 spot, with goals from Jonas, Pablo Hernandez, Aritz Aduriz and Tino Costa giving the Spanish side a huge 7-0 victory over Genk.

It remains, by a distance, Valencia's biggest win in the competition.

5. Zilina 0-7 Marseille 2010

Marseille’s trip to Slovakia to face Zilina saw them record the biggest away win in UEFA Champions League history back in 2010.

Goals from Gabriel Heinze, Loic Remy, Lucho Gonzales, as well as a hat-trick from Andre-Pierre Gignac made history with Marseille’s 7-0 rout over Zilina.

What made matters worse for the Slovakian side is how they were making their debut in the competition this year.

4. Arsenal 7-0 Slavia Praha 2007

For the first English involvement in the list, we have Arsenal, who destroyed Slavia Praha for a group stage game back in 2007.

A Cesc Fabregas goal after five minutes put the game in Arsenal’s control, with an own goal from Hubacek, plus a Theo Walcott goal, handing the Gunners a 3-0 lead before half time.

Another goal each from Fabregas, as well as efforts from Alexander Hleb and Nicklas Bendtner, ended the game 7-0 in Arsenal's favour.

It what has been a strange relationship for the north London side in the Champions League, this remains their biggest ever win in the competition.

3. Juventus 7-0 Olympiacos - 2003

Olympiacos’ trip to Turin to face Juventus back during the 2003/04 season couldn’t have gone much worse.

Two early goals from David Trezeguet and Fabrizo Miccoli put the game out of Olympiacos’ sight, with a goal from Enzo Maresca and a second from Trezeguet handing Juventus a 4-0 lead at half-time.

The Old Lady didn’t take their foot off the gas for the second half and scored two more thanks to Alessandro Del Piero and Marcelo Zalayeta.

Juventus haven't won the title since 1996 and this remains their biggest win in the famous competition.

2. Real Madrid 8-0 Malmo 2015

Swedish side Malmo were fully expected to leave the Bernabeu with nothing when they faced Real Madrid in the final Group A game of the 2015/16 season, but to lose 8-0 was far from expected.

Despite Karim Benzema scoring a hat-trick within 74 minutes, the game was dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo who scored four goals in 19 minutes, with Mateo Kovacic also getting on the scoresheet to seal the joint biggest win in Champions League history.

The 13-time champions of Europe have had a history like no other in the competition, but this remains their biggest win.

1. Liverpool 8-0 Besiktas 2007

The 2019 winners Liverpool have had a magnificent time in the Champions League, reaching nine finals and winning six of them. Plus, the Reds also boast the joint biggest win in the history of the competition when they met Besiktas in 2007.

A Peter Crouch opener got Liverpool off to the perfect start at Anfield, with Yossi Benayoun scoring a hat-trick within 56 minutes. Steven Gerard joined in with the goals as well as Ryan Babel, who bagged a brace before Crouch scored his second in the 89th minute.

It was another magical night at Anfield and this 8-0 rout remains the biggest at Anfield in the modern era, beating any win they've ever managed in the Premier League.
