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 1 of their 16/17 Champions League campaign Celtic faced a tough trip to Spain to face Barcelona 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 3 minutes was an appropriate start to what would be a dominant Barcelona performance with Messi scoring another 2 by the 60th minute along with a brace from Luis Suarez and goals from Neymar and Andres Iniesta to seal a 7-0 win for Barcelona and an embarrassing defeat for Celtic who would finish bottom of Group C on 3 points.

9. Bayern Munich 7-0 Shakhtar Donetsk 2015

In their third appearance in the Champions League round of 16, Shakhtar Donetsk faced a tough tie with Bayern Munich and after a 0-0 draw in Ukraine they faced a tough game in Munich if they wanted to reach the quater-finals. Shakhtar’s hopes were crushed after 3 minutes when a Thomas Muller penalty put the Germans ahead with Jerome Boateng putting the tie to bed with Bayern’s second after 34 minutes. Bayern 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 giving 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 11/12 group stage, Basel were drawn against Bayern Munich in the round of 16 and after a 1-0 win in Switzerland, Basel had a chance of qualifying for the Champions League quarter-finals for their first time. Arjen Robben’s opener took Bayern level on aggregate with a goal from Thomas Muller putting the Germans ahead. After that, the game was dominated by Mario Gomez who scored 4 goals to put the tie to bed, with Arjen Robben scoring his second to give Bayern a comfortable win who would eventually reach the final and lose on penalties to Chelsea.

6. Valencia 7-0 Genk 2011

For the second Spanish involvement in this list, we have Valencia when the 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 Valencia a huge 7-0 victory over Genk.

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 gave made history with Marseille’s 7-0 win over Zilina and helped them qualify to the round of 16 where they would face Manchester United.

4. Arsenal 7-0 Slavia Praha 2007

For the first English involvement in the list, we have Arsenal when they hosted Czech side Slavia Praha for a group stage game back in 2007. A Czech Fabregas goal after 5 minutes put the game in Arsenal’s control with an own goal from Hubacek and a goal from Theo Walcott giving Arsenal a 3-0 lead before half-time. A second goal a piece from Fabregas and Walcott as well as goals from Alexander Hleb and Nicklas Bendtner gave Arsenal a 7-0 home win.

3. Juventus 7-0 Olympiacos 2003

Olympiacos’ trip to Turin to face Juventus back during the 03/04 season couldn’t have gone any 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 giving Juventus a 4-0 lead at half-time. Juventus didn’t take their foot off the gas for the second half and scored 2 more thanks to Alessandro Del Piero and Marcelo Zalayeta.

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 15/16 season, but to lose 8-0 was beyond unexpected. Despite Karim Benzema scoring a hat-trick within 74 minutes, the game was dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo who scored 4 goals in 19 minutes with Mateo Kovacic also getting on the scoresheet to seal the joint biggest win in Champions League history.

1. Liverpool 8-0 Besiktas 2007

Finishing off our list in joint first placed is current European Champions Liverpool thanks to their huge 8-0 win over Turkish side Besiktas at Anfield back in 2007. A Peter Crouch opener got Liverpool off to a good start with Yossi Benayoun scoring a hat-trick within 56 minutes. Steven Gerard joined in with the goals as well as Ryan Babel who scored a brace before Crouch scored his second in the 89th minute to give Liverpool the biggest victory in Champions League history.
