[ad_1]

The first four teams have qualified to the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 after Liverpool (Group B), Ajax (Group C), Juventus (Group H) and Bayern Munich (Group E) all maintained their perfect record and mathematically clinched spots in the knockouts with two games to go. 

Meanwhile, three clubs will be playing out the string: RB Leipzig (Group A), Besiktas (Group C) and Malmo FF (Group H) were the first teams eliminated from the Champions League. But Leipzig and Malmo are still hoping to finish in third place to qualify for a playoff berth in the knockout rounds of Europe’s second-tier competition, the Europa League.

UEFA Champions League 2021-2022: Tournament Format

The 2021-2022 edition of the UEFA Champions League features a familiar format and one massive new twist.

As usual, the tournament starts out with a group stage (eight groups of four teams each), and only the top two finishers in each group advance to the Round of 16 that kicks off in February 2022. Two-leg, aggregate-goal knockout rounds are played the rest of the way through to the single game final that will be held on May 28, 2022 in Russia.

  • Group Stage: Sept. 14-15, Sept. 28-29, Oct. 19-20, Nov. 2-3, Nov. 23-24, Dec. 7-8
  • Round of 16: Feb. 15-16, March 8-9 / Feb. 22-23, March 15-16
  • Quarterfinals: April 5-6, April 12-13
  • Semifinals: April 26-27, May 3-4
  • Final: May 28, 2022 (St. Petersburg, Russia)

No away goals tiebreaker

Here’s that twist: For the first time since 1965, there will be no away goals tiebreaker used in the knockout rounds of UEFA competitions, including the Champions League, after it was abolished in June 2021.

Series that are tied on aggregate goals after the conclusion of the second leg will go straight to extra time and, if necessary, a penalty-kick shootout.
