Arsenal were comfortably beaten by Barcelona, Chelsea were brushed aside by Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United were knocked out at the group stage - it hasn’t been a successful European campaign for English clubs.
But this isn’t exactly a one-off.
Last season, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea were all knocked out in the last-16 while Liverpool failed to make it past the group stage.

With just one English winner in the previous seven seasons - Chelsea in 2012 - the Premier League clubs are struggling to compete with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
While everyone has their own opinion of why English clubs are no longer conquering Europe, two players that are currently reaching the latter stages of the competition have had their say.

Bayern Munich duo Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller are looking to repeat their 2013 European triumph and they feel they know the problem with the top English sides.
“The English teams have a lot of money and good players, but it’s important that you don’t just focus on being number one in England," Neuer told BT Sport, per The Mirror.
"You also have to keep an eye on the other teams in Europe and look what Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern München, Dortmund as well as Juventus do and compare yourself to these clubs - It’s not about looking for and getting the best player in the world and thinking that it will all work out.
"You need to have a certain structure, five or six English players who identify with and know the club very well, don’t change the club and the character of the team every year,” he added.
Bayern for glory?
Neuer and his teammates would have been pleased with the outcome of the quarter-final draw, which saw them paired with Portuguese side Benfica.
If they do progress to the last-four, it will mean the Bavarians will reach their third consecutive Champions League semi-final.
Muller, who has scored seven goals in his eight appearances in Europe’s elite competition, has also had his say in England’s recent failures.
“In England it might be the problem that there are five teams who want to have that one player," he said.
"It might not be bad for the people in general, as it makes the Premier League really exciting.
"With every matchday, changes can happen from top spot down to 5th or 6th - there is a lot of movement. Then there is Chelsea a club you can talk about a lot where it isn't working out well at the moment or Manchester [United].
"I think it is exciting but to be successful internationally again you need one top team. Because there is so much competition on the transfer market it might be a bit more difficult for the English clubs at the moment," he concluded.
