Champions League 2019-20: Qualified teams, groups & knockout fixtures

Champions League 2019-20: Qualified teams, groups & knockout fixtures
There is very little rest for UEFA as they get ready for another edition of their flagship continental club competition

The 2019-20 Champions League kicks off in early summer, just a few weeks after the curtain falls on the 2018-19 tournament.

Europe’s elite will look to nip England’s resurgence in the bud after witnessing the Premier League deliver all four finalists for UEFA’s club competitions.

Lionel Messi’s quest for a fifth continental crown with Barcelona continues, while Cristiano Ronaldo will be expected to inspire Juventus to their first title since 1996.

Record-breaking Real Madrid, meanwhile, will be aiming to return to the summit and there is always room for a bolt from the blue, a la Ajax in last season’s edition.
 
Goal brings you everything you need to know about the 2019-20 tournament, including which teams have qualified, fixtures and more.
 
Which teams have qualified for the 2019-20 Champions League?
The make-up of the 2019-20 Champions League group stage is mostly complete, with around a quarter of the places up for grabs.
 
Heavyweights such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Juventus and Bayern Munich have qualified by virtue of their league positions, as have Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.
 
There is no place, however, for Manchester United or for Arsenal, who lost the Europa League final to Chelsea.
While most group-stage berths are already confirmed, teams will also make their way through the various qualifying rounds in an attempt to claim one of the remaining six places.
 
The road to those six places continued on August 20 with Ajax drawing 0-0 with APOEL in their first leg while Club Brugge and Slavia Prague took down LASK and CFR Cluj 1-0, respectively, in their opening legs.
 
The following evening Olympiacos took a commanding 4-0 first-leg lead over Krasnodar while Dinamo Zagreb beat Rosenborg 2-0 and Red Star Belgrade scored two away goals in a draw with Young Boys.
