Man City can become just the eighth European club to win a continental treble by beating Inter on Saturday. What kind of company will they be keeping?
In European history, only seven teams have won the European Cup, as well as their domestic top flight and premier cup competition – but it is becoming more common.
Barcelona and Bayern Munich both won their first trebles this century but each have since gone onto repeat the feat more recently, contributing to the fact that five of the nine clean sweeps across the continent have come since 2009.
Prior to that, Sir Alex Ferguson’s famous Manchester United side of 1999 had been the only team since Guus Hiddink’s PSV some 11 years earlier to have won all three trophies in the same season.
