About the Champions League

UCL Logo

The UEFA Champions League started in its current format back in 1992. Before that, it had been known as the European Cup.

In its present format, the tournament starts with between 79 and 81 teams (in preliminary qualifying) which are then whittled down to 32 for the group stages.

The group stage has eight groups of four teams. The top two from each group qualify and advance into the last-16, which is a knockout tournament. Each tie takes place over two legs (home and away).

This is when the tournament really heats up, as the major names in European soccer are pitted head to head, with the losers exiting the tournament.

Real Madrid

Next best is AC Milan with 7 total (3 in the CL era), Liverpool on 6 (2), Bayern Munich, and Barcelona with 5 (2 and 4 since the inception of the Champions League in 1992).
