When it comes to Italian football, Fiorentina represent a very unique and interesting case study. The Viola are the first club from Italy and Serie A to not only win a title in Europe but also play in three different European finals, as they prevailed in the Cup Winners' Cup maiden edition.
The coin that could have ended Roma's maiden campaign in the Cup Winners Cup early (against PSV), opted to give the Romanisti initial hope before ensuring eventual disappointment in the Semi Finals against Gornik Zabrze, one that would take a long time to recover from.
Among the five Champions League finals that Juventus have been at the receiving end since their title win in 1996, their best chance was in 1997. But Juve were guilty of turning a blind eye to the ingenuity of their opponents Borussia Dortmund.
With the addition of the UECL last season, clubs in the various leagues across Europe once again have three continental competitions to look forward to. The possibility of three clubs from the same league/country making a clean sweep has once again arisen. It remains to be seen if Serie A' s unique three-peat of 1990 will witness a repeat in the coming years.
