😃 Álvaro Odriozola won a trophy every 122 minutes of playing time in 2019/20

Although he was an unused substitute in Sunday's final, on-loan Spanish fullback Álvaro Odriozola collected a winner's medal which makes his winning record an incredible one. 

Bayern's unstoppable run to glory in Lisbon was defined by a stretch of 21 consecutive wins in all competitions. The only match they haven't won in 2020 was a 0-0 draw with RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga.

Speaking of winning, back to Odriozola who won his fifth medal of the 2019-20 season at an average of a trophy every 122 minutes of playing time.

The 24-year-old represented parent club Real Madrid during the first half of their victorious La Liga campaign this season and was a member of the squad that won January's Spanish Super Cup tournament in Saudi Arabia against city rivals Atletico. He joined Bayern on loan in time to win the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League. Odriozola made a total of 10 appearances split across the two super clubs and didn't take part in any finals, but still collects a major honour for every 122.6 minutes on the pitch this season.

Needless to say, Odriozola has a brilliant season. How does his 2019-20 haul compare to some other remarkable winning records in football history?

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Kieran Tierney

One man with an even better silverware-to-games ratio over their entire careers than Odriozola is new Arsenal fans' favourite Kieran Tierney. The 23-year-old Scotsman averages a trophy every 16 matches with 12 trophies (11 with former Glasgow Celtic, one FA Cup for the Gunners) in 194 career appearances.

🇫🇷 Zinedine Zidane

Zidane has scooped 11 trophies in 211 games in charge of Real Madrid. That's one trophy for every 19.1 matches at the helm. Unreal.

🇨🇷 Keylor Navas

Speaking of Real Madrid legends, Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas won 14/14 knockout matches with Los Blancos in the Champions League. Now with PSG, their defeat on Sunday would have hurt but it's the only knockout tie in Europe's elite club competition that he's ever lost.

👟 Pep Guardiola

While others have won more in terms of pure numbers, when it comes to managerial trophies-per-game records, Guardiola boasts the strongest win rate in the big leagues. By claiming the Carabao Cup back in March, the City boss won his 29th major honour since moving into management in 2008. At the time, that represented roughly one trophy per 21 games and an average of around 2.4 trophies per season.

🌳 Nottingham Forest

Forest has won two European Cups in their history even though they've only played a total of 20 games in the competition. Consecutive wins in 1979 & 1980 under the legendary Nigel Clough mean that Nottingham Forest, currently in the second tier of English football, will forever have their name written in European football's hall of fame. 

🇧🇪 Richie De Laet

Belgian fullback Richie De Late, once on the books of Man United, won promotion to the Premier League and a Premier League winner's medal on the exact same day on May 7th 2016. De Late was an unused sub for loan club Middlesbrough as they gained automatic promotion on the Championship's final day. Meanwhile, Leicester City completed one of the most miraculous fairytale stories in sporting history with a 3-1 win over Everton to clinch the Premier League title. De Laet collected a medal at his parent club.

🧤 Tomasz Kuszczak

The perennial number 2 goalkeeper spent five years with Man Untied, making only 25 appearances in that time, but he won 11 trophies including four Premier League titles and a Champions League crown.
