Bayern Munich : Record Margins In Old European Cup


========================================================
West Germany international superstar striker GERD “der Bomber” MUELLER scored 35 goals in 35 European Cup matches for Bayern Munich including a club record five goals against AC Omonia Nicosia of Cyprus in late October of 1972, a match which still to this day sets the Bavarian standard for largest margin of victory in the continent’s preeminent annual football competition.

Up until the end of the 1990/91 season, the European Cup was conducted strictly with round-by-round elimination based on home-and-away meetings of the various national champions plus the current holder; the tournament was then re-named the UEFA Champions League to start the 1992/93 campaign and, for financial reasons, soon began to expand to allow teams that were not the current domestic title holder in their homeland to enter the most prestiguous competition on the continent.
