Bayern Munich has been the most appeared German club in the Champions League. Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are the other two clubs that have contributed their best for the list.
In an unexpected incident, Bayern recently lost to Villareal in the quarter-final of UCL. They were supposed to win the game as the second leg was held at their home ground Allianz Stadium.
