Man City quadruple: Where the English, Euro teams stay.

 Manchester City will chase quadruple: Where the English and European teams stay.

Now, the English team, Manchester City is running so close in this season 2018-19 to winning the Quadruple and making the football history, although it is very tough task wins the Football Quadruple, Liverpool is top on the EPL points table, and Man. City will face Brighton in the FA Cup semi-finals and Tottenham in the Champions League quarter-finals, knowing they are 15 games away from winning an unprecedented quadruple in Soccer.

 Manchester City will chase quadruple: the English teams so close and European teams won

 what is the quadruple in Soccer/Football.?

 The Quadruple is a term that is used in football to denote a football club winning four different competitions in the same season. It is said to be a huge honour to ‘do the quadruple’. The four different competitions are usually the domestic league, the two most important club competitions, and a continental competition.

 The treble has been achieved by United, and City could still win a treble of their own this season, but the quadruple remains an impossible dream, never realised and possibly never to be achieved.

 Here, we remember the teams that came closest to winning all four competitions, with a look at where - and when - their quadruple bid ended.

 The closest English teams come to winning the quadruple.

Top European Teams to win the quadruple, Madrid twice.

  It is not easy at all to achieve this feat but Scottish giants Celtic managed to do just that in the 1966-1967 for the first time in football history, when they won the Scottish First Division, the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup and the European Cup.

 Pep Guardiola won six trophies in the calendar year of 2009 with Barcelona - the Champions League, La Liga, Spanish Cup, Fifa Club World Cup, Uefa Super Cup and the Copa del Rey.

 But he failed to win the 'proper' quadruple during his best season with Barcelona in 2009-10. They picked up the Spanish Cup and La Liga - showing Barcelona's dominance in Spain - but fell short in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

They again won the Uefa Super Cup and the Club World Cup instead and repeated the feat in 2015-16.

 Real Madrid arguably went one better, replacing the Copa del Rey with the Champions League as part of their four-trophy haul a year later.

They won four trophies again in 2017-18 but finished a mighty 17 points below Barcelona in La Liga and were also knocked out in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.
