Bayern Munich won the 1973-74 UEFA Champions League, then known as the European Cup.
This was the 19th edition of the competition and the first time a team from Germany had reached the final, and won it. This would be the first of three successive victories for the German side.
Bayern Munich beat Spanish champions Atlético Madrid 4-0 in a replay at the Heysel Stadium in Brussels, Belgium after the first game in the same stadium had finished 1-1 after extra-time two days earlier. This was the first and only occasion that the Champions League final went to a replay, with penalty shootouts later determining the winner.
