Upcoming Champions League Games
Every match in the UEFA Champions League can be found on Oddspedia. Check the calendar from qualification to the group stage. The data is always updated after the end of the match. You can also check the next matches of your favourite teams. A total of 79 teams participate in the Champions League and play the qualifying rounds from June to May of the following year to decide who is the new football king of Europe. All this information about the UEFA Champions League can of course be found on Oddspedia.
The Champions League starts in June, just a few weeks after the end of the previous season. It begins with the first qualifying round with the teams with the worst UEFA coefficient (San Marino, Kosovo, Gibraltar and Andorra) and then continues with two further qualifying rounds before the playoffs to determine the four out of eight teams that have survived these rounds and reach the draw for the Champions League group stage. The group stage is made up of eight groups of four teams each, with the top two in each group qualifying for the round of sixteen. And the third-placed team will also spend the winter in Europe and continue playing in the UEFA Europa League games after the winter break.
Group Stage and Knock-Out Rounds
In the group phase of the Champions League, there are six matchdays between mid-September and December, so each team plays twice against each of its group rivals, once on home ground and once on foreign ground. This is followed by the draw for the round of sixteen, where 16 of the 32 group stage starters are still in the draw. They will then progress through the quarter-finals and semi-finals in knockout rounds of first- and second-leg matches until the final at the end of May, which will be played in a single match at a venue chosen by UEFA, which are always stadiums with at least 60,000 spectators, usually very modern stadiums.
Champions League matches are normally played at two different times (18.55 and 21.00 CET), depending on the time zone in which they are played. However, Oddspedia always shows you the starting times according to the time zone you are in. So you don't have to worry about this when you get this information from our website.

The History of the UEFA Champions League
The UEFA Champions League, as we know it today, goes back to the European Cup of National Champions, which was first played in the 1955/56 season. On 4 September 1955, the first matchday of the European Cup of National Champions took place. The national champions of all European countries were eligible to participate in this first official European tournament for club teams. At that time, the competition was played exclusively in the knockout system, without any seed lists. To date, teams from ten different football associations and nine different nations have won the Trophy.
In 1992 there was a fundamental modification of the tournament, because from that point on not only the national champions qualified for the competition but also the second, third and fourth-place finishers of the stronger football associations. That was at the expense of the national champions of the weaker associations, and here especially to the disadvantage of the Eastern European nations. Due to the modification, the competition was renamed the "Champions League".
Most Successful Teams
Real Madrid is the most successful team in the competition with 14 titles (since 1955/56, i.e. including the European Cup of National Champions), followed by AC Milan with seven titles and FC Liverpool with six titles. The most successful German club, as might be expected, is FC Bayern Munich with five titles. Together with FC Barcelona, this puts them in 4th place among the most successful Champions League teams, if you measure them by the titles alone.
However, measured by the number of finals appearances, only Real Madrid with 17 final appearances and AC Milan with 11 are ahead of FC Bayern, who have reached the Champions League final ten times - the last time in 2013 when FC Bayern beat arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the "German final". Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, won the Champions League in 1997 - and in Munich's Olympic Stadium, of all places, when they defeated Juventus Turin 3-1. The sensational goal by Lars Ricken, which decided the game, is unforgettable. Also against Juventus, the Hamburg native was able to climb the European football throne in 1983. The game ended 1-0 for HSV, with Felix Magath winning the trophy for his team with a successful long-range shot.
At the start of the following season, the Champions League winner will then meet the UEFA Europa League winner in the European Supercup match. And in December the winner will play as the UEFA representative for the FIFA Club World Cup against the continental champions of the other continental associations.
The UEFA Champions League is the most-watched sporting event in the world. Most recently, more than 350 million viewers from all over the world watched the strength of the best European teams - and the trend is still rising.

The Format of the UEFA Champions League
The Champions League has changed its game mode from time to time. In the first season, 1955/56 the tournament was played based on knockout matches only. However, this format was changed in 1992 to make way for the current UEFA Champions League. In the 1990s, the model and the number of participants were changed fundamentally several times.
The last fundamental change in the mode of play and the number of participants occurred after the 2001/02 season when the intermediate round was replaced by knockout matches in the round of 16. Since then, only the preliminary round has been played in the form of group matches, with the 32 starters in the group stage divided into eight groups of four teams each, in which each team plays against the other three teams in the group in the return match. Accordingly, the group stage comprises six matches per group. After the round of sixteen, the competition then continues with knockout rounds of first and second-leg matches until the final, where the winner is determined in a single match at a neutral venue determined by UEFA several years earlier.
In the group stage, the best two out of four teams in each group then advance to the round of sixteen, while the third-placed teams switch competitions and then continue playing in the Europa League after the winter break.
The quarter-finals and semi-finals will then be played in the same way as the round of sixteen in knockout rounds of first and second-leg matches. The only difference to the round of sixteen is that, from the quarter-finals onwards, teams from the same national association can play against each other. Similarly, teams that have already played against each other in the group stage can now meet again, which was ruled out for the round of sixteen.
If the first and second legs both end in a draw or an aggregate draw (for example, a 2-1 win in the first leg and a 0-1 defeat in the second leg), the team that scored more goals away from home qualifies for the next round. Only if the number of goals scored away is also the same does the return leg go into extra time, which consists of two short halves of 15 minutes each. If there is still no winner after extra time, the qualifier for the next round is determined by a penalty shoot-out. Formally, however, wins on penalties are not counted as wins in the statistics (this is of course only relevant in cases where both matches ended in a draw).
The subsequent final will then determine not only the King of European club football but also the qualifier for participation in the European Supercup and the UEFA representative for the FIFA Club World Cup. Historically, UEFA clubs have always been the favourites, as the top European teams are also very dominant at the global level.
Which Champions League team to support?
Here are some ideas, to pick from.
- Being a fan of a particular league
Even if your favourite team is not participating, you may have an affinity with one or the other participating clubs.
- Club history:
There will be teams that are very popular because of their history or historical performance. Among them are certainly Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Liverpool FC, etc., as they have always been among the best teams in the competition for decades, even if some clubs have been going through a weak phase for a few years, such as AC Milan, Inter Milan or Manchester United at the moment.
If you are a great lover of stories where small teams play big, then of course it is natural to become a supporter of one of those teams that fight year after year to qualify for the group stage. In particular, those teams that have historically achieved great success and are now finding it extremely difficult to compete with the top clubs from the big leagues due to changes in the Champions League model and the Bosman ruling may deserve a little more support. One need only think of Ajax Amsterdam, Benfica Lisbon or FC Porto, for example, but also of the clubs from Eastern Europe, which were still able to achieve great success on the European pitch in the late 1980s and early 1990s until they were unable to keep their players on the European scene due to political changes in Europe and have since then, unfortunately, not been on an equal footing with the teams from the big leagues.
When does the Champions League season start and end and how many Champions League games are there per season?
Normally the Champions League season starts in June / July of the current year and ends in May of the following year. According to the current model, a total of 216 matches are played, of which 125 are played from the group stage until the grand final in May.
When does the Champions League season start?
The Champions League season starts in June and lasts until May of the following year.
How many teams qualify for the Champions League?
Including the qualification rounds, a total of 80 teams will start in the Champions League. However, the group phase then begins with only 32 teams. According to the current model, 216 games are played per season, 91 of which are in the qualifying rounds and 125 from the group phase to the final.
When does a Champions League season end?
The Champions League, the largest continental club football competition in Europe, regularly ends in May each year. The venue for the final, which determines the winner of the competition in a single match, is usually chosen by UEFA two to three years in advance.
Who is the All-Time Record Goal Scorer in the Champions League?
Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer of all time in the Champions League as of the 2023/2024 season. He has scored 140 times in the UCL.
