Forest have only only featured in three campaigns in Europe's top club competition, lifting the trophy in their first two seasons (1978/79 and 1979/80) before going out in the first round of the third, 1980/81. That all means they have been crowned European champions twice despite having played just 20 games in the competition. That's one European Cup for every ten matches played.

In the 1979 European Cup Final held at the Olympiastadion, Munich, on 30 May 1979, Trevor Francis scored the only goal of the match, as Nottingham Forest of England defeated Malmö FF of Sweden 1–0 to become European champions for the first time in club history. The win represented a third successive victory for an English side in the European Cup, after Liverpool's victories in 1977 and 1978.

In the 1980 European Cup Final held at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, saw Nottingham Forest of England defeat Hamburg of West Germany by a score of 1–0. In the 21st minute, John Robertson squeezed a shot past Hamburg keeper Rudi Kargus for the only goal of the game, and Forest then defended solidly, to give Nottingham Forest back-to-back European Cup titles. The victory also meant that Forest became the first club that had won the European Cup more times than their domestic first division.
