The Champions League will truly get underway with the quarter-final draw tomorrow.
Although European football has been in full swing for almost two months now, it's hard to act as though the beautiful game is back in all its glory until the Champions League makes a return.
Regardless of whether you're a loyal Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A or La Liga follower, you've got to admit that there's a certain X factor about the pinnacle of European football.
Champions League returning soon
Atalanta, Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid and RB Leipzig have already booked themselves a place in the final eight, but there's another four second-leg ties to contest in the mean time.
And there will be shedloads of inspiration for the remaining teams to succeed Liverpool as European champions and ensure their place in history by lifting 'Big Ears' on August 23.
Who are the Champions League GOATs?
And as we wait patiently for that narrative to fire into action when the curtains reopen, we can't help but looking back to the past and the winners that precede the eventual 2019/20 winners.
It's no secret that Real Madrid are the most prolific winners with a cool 13 trophies to their name, though it would be short-sighted to limit the European elite to those at the Bernabeu.
So, to get your bloody pumping for the Champions League returning and to hopefully make you feel proud of your own club, we have taken a look at the competition's all-time league table.
All-time Champions League table
The data gurus at statbunker.com have compiled a league table of every team to ever play in the Champions League with wins counting for three points, draws for one and losses amounting to nil.
We're sure you get the picture and for our money, it's the ultimate demonstration of which teams have been European football's finest since the competition's 1992 rebranding.
But enough chit-chat, you want to know the results, so enjoy them at your leisure down below:
Real Madrid top the table
Six of Real's titles may have come before 1992, but that doesn't stop them finishing top of the table and it comes to the surprise of absolutely nobody.
Barcelona are the next best in Spanish football, Manchester United lead the way for the Premier League and the perpetually-unlucky Juventus are the top dogs on Italian shores.
Perhaps the biggest surprise comes with Arsenal's place in sixth, which seems to be a product of their consistency in the mid-2000s as opposed to actually regularly competing for the trophy.
Exciting times for European football
They can expect to be overtaken by Chelsea in the not too distant future, though probably not against Bayern, to add to their title as the only London club to ever lift the Champions League title.
Meanwhile, at the bottom of the table, let's have a moment of silence for Otelul Galati, 1. FC Kosice, MSK Zilina, Debreceni VSC and Levski Sofia as the only teams on zero points.
And now, the only thing to wonder is how the table might change in the final stages of this season and if you're not excited for that, you're simply not human.
