The Top 10 Trios In European Cup History?

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar have battled Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo as best scoring trios in Europe over the past seasons, but neither of them was chosen as best ever trio in European Cup history.

Click through the gallery of the 10 best attacking trios in European Cup history, according to France Football.

French publication France Football looked through the history books to compare the deadliest forward lines in European Cup – European Champions Cup and UEFA Champions League – history.

However, neither ‘MSN’ nor ‘BBC’ were selected as the top trio despite dominating the headlines over recent years. Instead the triplet of Alfredo Di Stefano, Ferenc Puskas and Paco Gento, who helped Real Madrid to lift five consecutive Champions Cups between 1955 and 1960, were named as the best trio in European Cup history.

The legendary Los Blancos forward line is followed by FC Barcelona’s famous ‘MSN’ trio, which scored 122 goals between them in 2014/15 when the Catalan giants last won the Champions League title.

A trio including Cristiano Ronaldo follows in third spot, but it’s not Real’s famous ‘BBC’, but instead the Portuguese’s partnership with Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez, which led Manchester United to their last UEFA Champions League title in 2008, completes the top three.

‘BBC’ only sit in fifth position, while Barca’s attacking line of Messi, Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto’o, which helped Pep Guardiola to lift six trophies in 2009, appear in sixth position.
