    Selected pick of sides conquered by Scottish sides

    Here is a list of some of the great club sides that Scottish clubs have defeated in competitive games. I have selected a pick of the sides, they have also defeated other teams I have not mentioned. I am including a win in any individual game, including after extra time. So they may have been knocked out over two legs by the same team. I do not include penalty shoot outs, or away goals rule victories, when both games were drawn. This is purely a list of individual game wins by Scottish sides.

    The most glaring teams not on this list are Chelsea, PSG, Roma, Lazio, Marseille, Sampdoria, Arsenal, IFK Gothenburg, Galatasary, Fenerbache, West Ham, Swansea City, Cardiff City, Wrexham, Newport, Torino, and Zenit St Petersburg. Plus almost all non European teams such as Corinthians, and Santos.


    The teams beaten by the most Scottish teams seem to have been Standard Liege, Anderlecht, and Sporting Lisbon.


    Scottish clubs have also beaten nations in friendlies including Striling Albion of Japan, Aberdeen of South Africa and Hearts of Australia.
