Best Football (Soccer) Matches of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Manchester United vs Bayern Munich 1999

Greatest match of all time. To score 2 goals in injury time is unimaginable given the arena.

Best match ever watched

Man utd and munich are both the best teams of premier league and Bundesliga

The only match which makes me cry, it's so amusing and magnificent that I can't even explain.
And MNU is not even my top 5 favorite team, this has to be the G.O.A.T. match

2 Barcelona vs Real Madrid 2010

It's the match

why not

Bitter match for Real fans 5 goal and awful playing - Rhapsody

3 Liverpool vs A.C. Milan 2005

Best come back ever

Just one word.“WOW”

Great return of liverpool and scoring 3 goals - Rhapsody

4 Brazil vs Netherlands 1998

Grande R9 e Taffarel

Melhor jogo da historia das copas

5 Germany vs Brazil 2014

Obviously Europe is home of the best football, I must be a racist American even though America did not factor into this humiliation for Brazil. Toughen up buttercup


I am Brazilian and I think this should be lower. Whoever added this in here must be a German, a Colombian, or a racist American. There are so many videos about this match, and some racist American hypocrites think this match is funny. WORST MATCH EVER! - Gabo147

Absolutely incredible game

Evil Simeone Beckham's red card owen superb goal - Rhapsody

Nobody forced becham to kick simeone. - keyson

9 Barcelona vs Paris Saint-Germain 2017

I do seriously think that this is the best 2 legged come back of all time

The game which was considered lost up till the last minute

I was there. What a night.

Barcelona was humiliated in the first match against PSG, losing having a 4-0. But they believed in the come back when no one did. In the second match, they scored 3 goals and gave hope to the barcelona fans. This hope was destroyed by Cavani, that scored an put the 3-1 in the scoreboard.
It was in the minute 87 that anyone believed in the come back. Anyone, but Neymar. He scored in the 88' and 90', and made an excellent pass to Sergi Roberto to score in the 90+5'.
The final score was 6-1, 6-5 in the global score, and Barcelona passed round making the greatest come back ever. - Alvarodr

10 Liverpool vs Barcelona 2019 Champions League Semifinals Second Leg

If this had ended with the actual cup itself, it would go down as the greatest of all time.

It should be up there as number 2 - behind AC Milan

Wow, just wow

"We want to celebrate the Champions League campaign, either with a proper finish or another goal. That is the plan: just try. If we can do it, wonderful. If not, then fail in the most beautiful way." - Jurgen Klopp

Three words: NEVER GIVE UP!

Puskas could't play but the same was for Varela, both injuried.
After an amazing match Hungary won 4-2 in extra time with two headballs of S.Kocsis (top scorer of the Cup with 11 goals).

17 Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City 2019
