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



The UEFA Champions League continues with the third of six matchdays in the group stage and there are some teams already facing must-wins at the midway point.

RB Leipzig is still without a point and has to pay a visit to title favorite PSG, who will be without Brazilian star Neymar. Group B is must-watch every matchday and while Atletico Madrid vs. Liverpool is the marquee matchup, AC Milan (0 points) will be desperate to pick up points at Porto. Sheriff Tiraspol looks to continue surprising in its Champions League debut when it meets Inter Milan, while the loser of Group C’s Besiktas vs. Sporting CP matchup will be up against it.

Wednesday’s big games will see two giants needing home wins. After two losses to start, FC Barcelona is facing a must-win against Dynamo Kyiv. And Manchester United, which has been heavily criticized for its recent performances, will want to avoid any setbacks at home against group leader Atalanta.

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.
