After their success in the Champions League, FC Bayern are now officially top of the UEFA club coefficient rankings. The Munich men are now on 136,000 points, moving them above Real Madrid (134,000). The German record champions have thus ended the Spaniard's six-year reign at the top.

"It's a great honour and we're proud and happy to be back in first place in UEFA's five-year ranking," commented chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. "I would like to congratulate our team and our coach Hansi Flick and his staff for this. It's a great success for FC Bayern and a testament to the excellent work that's been done at our club over recent years, and in particular during this season. With 11 wins in 11 games, our team claimed the Champions League title in impressive style."

The UEFA rankings are based on clubs' results in the Champions League and Europa League (including qualifying) over the last five seasons, and is a key factor in the seeding for the draws in those competitions.
