We have compiled the best eleven which has never won the Champions League.
Goalkeeper: Gigi Buffon
This particular tournament has proved elusive for the Gigi Buffon to lift it as he has already appeared in the final thrice. But on all three occasions, he lost to AC Milan, Barcelona, and Real Madrid in 2003, 2015, and 2017 respectively. He featured 123 times in the Champions League for Juventus, Parma, and Paris Saint Germain. He has won numerous league titles with Juventus, World Cup with Italy, but never had the chance to taste success in the Champions League.
