A total of 11 of the 16 available spots in the UEFA Champions League knockout round have been claimed, leaving just enough drama for a compelling group stage finale on Dec. 7-8.

It’s an absolute free-for-all in Group G, where all four teams — LOSC Lille, RB Salzburg, Sevilla and VfL Wolfsburg — are in the running to claim the two available berths. All four Group G teams are within three points of one another heading into a compelling final matchday.

There is also a single spot still up for grabs in: 

  • Group B: Porto (5 points), AC Milan (4 points) and Atletico Madrid (4 points) are still battling for second place.
  • Group E: Barcelona (7 points) and Benfica (5 points) are still in contention to claim a ticket out of Group E.
  • Group F: Villarreal (7 points) and Atalanta (6 points) will meet in Italy for the right to move on to the Round of 16.

The top seed is the prize on the line in Group D (Real Madrid or Inter Milan) and Group H (Chelsea or Juventus). Finishing as the top seed guarantees drawing a group runner-up in the Round of 16, as well as playing the second leg of the Round of 16 at home. That’s considered an advantage if the series goes to extra time and penalty kicks in that second leg. (The Round of 16 kicks off in February 2022 following a winter break.)

The last group with nothing to play for is Group C: First- and second-place have already been decided and Borussia Dortmund has already locked up third place.

How to watch the UEFA Champions League

The 2021-22 UEFA Champions League is carried in the United States by CBS (English) and Univision (Spanish) across a number of TV and streaming platforms.

  • Dates: 29 matchdays from Sept. 2021-May 2022
  • TV Channels: CBS, CBS Sports Network-CBSSN (select matches only)
  • Spanish-language TV: Univision, TUDN, UniMas, Galavision, TUDNxtra (TUDNxtra available through select cable, satellite & streaming providers)
  • Streaming (English): Paramount+
  • Streaming (Spanish): fuboTV, PrendeTV, TUDN.tv, TUDN app (authenticated users)

CBS Sports has live pregame, halftime and postgame studio shows (UEFA Champions League Today) which air on CBS Sports Network and stream on Paramount+. Also back this year is the RedZone-like whiparound show called “The Golazo Show”, also on CBS Sports Network and Paramount+, with all the goals and best chances from the concurrent group stage matches.

Univision mirrors that coverage with its own pregame show (Fútbol Central) and postgame show (Misión Europa). Its whip-around show is called “Zona Fútbol”.

Most every Champions League match is available to be streamed on fuboTV, which offers a free seven-day trial to new subscribers. The streaming platform carries all the Univision family of channels: Univision, TUDN, UniMas, Galavision and TUDNxtra.

Univision will stream select matches on its free ad-supported platform PrendeTV available free of charge across mobile and connected TV devices, Amazon Fire TV, Apple (iOS and tvOS), Google (Android phones and TV devices), Roku, and via the web on Prende.tv.

UEFA Champions League 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 in Champions League

And 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.
