There’s a laundry list of teams that have absolutely no shot of winning the Champions League because of a lack of talent. But what about the teams that constantly find themselves in deep contention only for the Cup to be pulled away from them at the last minute?

Atletico took care of business against Galatasaray on Tuesday, but they’ll have to beat Benfica at home to keep ahead of the competition in Group C.
