UEFA Champions League schedule: Full list of upcoming matches with TV & streaming

The UEFA Champions League kicked off with some surprising results in the opening of the group stage on Tuesday. Switzerland’s BSC Young Boys knocked off Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United and RB Salzburg showed Sevilla they won’t be pushovers. Bayern Munich’s 3-0 win at Barcelona was the other headline grabber.

The attention shifts to 16 other teams on Wednesday with two marquee heavyweight clashes: Liverpool vs. AC Milan and Inter Milan vs. Real Madrid. Atletico Madrid vs. Porto and Manchester City vs. RB Leipzig should prove equally compelling. And then there’s also Lionel Messi’s Champions League debut with PSG at Club Brugge.

With powers Chelsea (1-0 winner vs. FC Zenit), Juventus (3-0 road victor vs. Malmo) and Bayern Munich all showing off their muscle as title contenders in their opening match, the clubs in action on Wednesday will be keen on leaving an equally strong impression.

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.
