Who do you guys think is Bayern's Number One rival in Europe?

I think it's undisputedly Real Madrid.

For me personally will always be all EPL and Serie A teams.
But for Bayern in general I think it is Real

Real Madrid and F.C. Barcelona first and foremost.....the English clubs and Juve will always be in the back burner...

I think it's a close call between Real Madrid and Manchester United. Not sure who has the edge. On the one hand, Real, countless memorable games, most played tie in the CL I think. But United, 1999 is just unparalleled.

For me Chelsea has a special place in hell though. I'm too young to remember 1999.

Milan as well I never remember us beating them...

for me personally I feel big tension when we face Milan, Juve and Real ...
When we face the EPL clubs I am still tensed but deep down I feel more confident...
When we are faced by Barca I am always indifferent.

We haven't beaten them actually, at least not in a competitive tie. We might have beaten them in some game or other (I don't think we have either) but not over two legs.

For some reason I never quite considered them rivals though. I don't think we've played that much against each other so the fact that we never beat them is a bit skewed.

Without any shadow of doubt it's historically AC Milan.

Here's some proof too.

But this is in oficial games? right? Something that is normal, because Bayern lost many games against that Milan of Ancelotti. It was the time when the best milan face our bad football period (2002-2009)....

But that record will be much better if that Bayern of 2010-2017 would have face them then, but this didnt happen so they safe their record.

That is correct.

Bayern first met AC Milan in 1967-68 Cup Winners' Cup semifinal -> AC Milan went through 2-0 aggregate and won the cup
Then in the 1989-90 European Cup semifinal -> AC Milan went through on away goals rule after extra time and won the cup
Then in the 2002-03 Champions League preliminary group stage -> AC Milan won both matches, topped the group and went on to win the cup; Bayern finished bottom of the group
Then in the 2005-06 Champions League last 16 -> AC Milan won 5-2 on aggregate and reached the semifinal only to be eliminated by eventual champions Barcelona
Then in the 2006-07 Champions League quarterfinals -> AC Milan went through 4-2 on aggregate and won the cup

That was the last time Bayern and Milan have met in a competition. Bayern have never faced a weak Milan side. In 4 out of 5 times we met them, they ended up lifting the trophy; only once did they fall short, against the wonderful Barcelona of 2006.

I don't think AC Milan and United can match Real Madrid. 1999 is the main reason behind Bayern - United rivalry (also there's that Best English team vs Best German team thing, but I don't think many Bavarians care about that aspect too much). AC Milan has been Bayern's Achilles heel in European competitions but the two teams haven't met enough times to be considered a legit rivalry. Plus it's not really a rivalry when the results are so one sided in favor of Milan!

Bayern vs Real is on a totally different level.

Barcelona having more votes than Milan and United is sheer lunacy! Wish these polls were public :mrgreen:
