Leeds United now share impressive record with only Real Madrid

Real Madrid Champions League

Leeds are one of two clubs to share an impressive Champions League record.

Without even playing last night - Leeds United's Champions League achievements of over a decade ago became even more impressive.

The Whites are now one of just two teams to have qualified from every group stage they have played in, since the competition evolved from the European Cup back in 1992.

As revealed by Spanish journalist Alexis Martin-Tamayo of AS and Latin ESPN, Leeds share their record with only Real Madrid, after Sevilla were eliminated last night.

Only teams who have played in two competitions or more are acknowledged.

Real Madrid have succeeded in 24 attempts, which makes Leeds United's two pale in comparison, but all the same it is an achievement to be proud of.

Leeds presently sit in 16th place in England's second tier, and the days of them playing Champions League football seem a distant memory.

Given their current predicament, simply getting back into the Champions League and losing every single game and spoiling this record would surely be a circumstance supporters would long for.
