Where’s The Best A Team From Your Country Has Finished in the UEFA Champions League?


It’s taken me a fair bit of work, but I’ve made an incredible chart.

It has every country in UEFA on it.

And for all of those who’ve had teams make at least the last 16, I’ve put their best finish on this chart.

I will work on it some more, so it has every country whose best is the last 32 (Israel will then be included thanks to Macabbi Tel Aviv’s 2015-16 qualification, and if Astana have a win or a goalless draw over APOEL tonight, Kazakhstan will be added to the chart) on it.

But, in the meantime, enjoy.
