How does the Champions League work?

The tournament is split into two phases, the group stage and the knockout round. The group stage features 32 teams, divided into eight groups (A-H) of four teams each. Each team plays the other teams in its group twice, for a total of six matches. The top two teams from each group advance to the knockout stage of the competition, with the third-placed teams heading into the Europa League.

The knockout stage consists of two-legged ties (home and away), with the winner determined by the aggregate score advancing to the next round. The away goals rule no longer exists in the Champions League.

The final of the UEFA Champions League is a one-off match played at a neutral venue, with the winner being crowned the champions of Europe.

Who has won the Champions League most often?

Real Madrid have hoisted UEFA’s grandest trophy 14 times and stand head-and-shoulders above their competitors when it comes to wins in this tournament, with second on the list AC Milan, having won the European Cup seven times. Recent champions include Manchester City (2023), Real Madrid (2022), Chelsea (2021), Bayern Munich (2020) and Liverpool (2019).

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Champions League work?

Prior to the tournament starting properly, some teams will play qualifiers to get into the UEFA Champions League, while higher-ranked teams are placed straight into the group stage.

Once the qualifiers are over, the group stages take place with eight groups of four teams playing mini-leagues. Each team plays everyone in their group twice, home and away. The top two qualify for the knockout rounds. There is an advantage to finishing in first place; you’ll then be seeded for the knockouts and play a team in the next round that qualified in second position.

There are three knockout stages before the Champions League Final: last 16, quarter-finals, and semi-finals. Each tie is made up of two legs, one home and one away. The final is a standalone one-off game.
