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 their respective countries.

The tournament consists of two parts, the group stage and the knockout stage. In the group stage, 32 teams are divided into eight groups of four and play each other in a round-robin format. The eight group winners and eight runners-up proceed to the knockout stage, which begins with a round of 16 match between group winners and runners-up. The tournament culminates with a final, which is typically held at a neutral venue that meets certain criteria.
In 2020–21, the 64th season of Europe’s premier club football tournament, there are two changes to last year’s format: firstly, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on continental football schedules nationwide, all matches in both stages will be played as single leg ties at neutral venues; secondly, following an agreement made between UEFA and European Club Association (ECA), up to five substitutions will be allowed during matches (though not at half-time).

Is the Champions League quarter-final a draw?
The quarter-final draw for the UEFA Champions League was made on Friday, and there are some exciting match-ups in store.
Real Madrid will take on Liverpool, while Barcelona will face off against AS Roma. Bayern Munich will take on Sevilla and Juventus will face off against Benfica.
So who will progress to the semi-finals? It’s tough to say, but we’ll give it a go.
Real Madrid vs Liverpool: Real Madrid have been in scintillating form in recent weeks and they’ll be full of confidence heading into this tie. They’ll have to be at their best though, as Liverpool are no slouches. The Reds have shown time and again that they can compete with the best teams in Europe, and they’ll fancy their chances here. We think Real Madrid will just edge it, but it could go either way.
Barcelona vs AS Roma: This is another tantalising match-up. Barcelona are arguably the best team in Europe right now, but AS Roma have been impressive in the Champions League so far. They knocked out favourites Chelsea in the round of 16, so they’ll be no pushovers. That said, we think Barcelona will ultimately prevail and reach the semi-finals.
Bayern Munich vs Sev
