What is the Champions League Draw?
The Champions League draw is an annual event that takes place in December, where 32 teams from around Europe are drawn into eight groups of four. Each team in a group plays the other three teams in their group twice, once at home and once away. The top two teams from each group advance to the knockout stage of the tournament.
The Different Rounds of the Champions League
The Champions League is an annual club football competition organised by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) and contested by top-division European clubs. It is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world and the most prestigious club competition in European football, played by the national league champions (and, for some nations, one or more runners-up) of UEFA member associations.
The tournament was first held in 1955–56 with sixteen clubs taking part. The first champions were Real Madrid, who beat Stade de Reims 4–3 in the final staged in Paris. Spanish teams have won the most titles (18), followed by England (13) and Italy (12). Since 2009–10, it has been known as simply “the Champions League”.
The tournament consists of several stages. In the present format, it begins in late June with four knockout qualifying rounds and a play-off round. The 6 surviving teams enter the group stage, joining 26 other teams qualified in advance. The 32 teams are drawn into eight groups of four teams and play each other in a double round-robin system. The eight group winners and eight runners-up proceed to the knockout phase that culminates with the final match in May. Real Madrid are the current holders, having won their thirteenth title in 2018.
