The 2019–20 UEFA Champions League is the 65th season of Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 28th season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs' Cup to the UEFA Champions League.

The final will be played at the Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, Portugal. The winners of the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League will earn the right to play against the winners of the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League in the 2020 UEFA Super Cup; they will also qualify for the 2020 FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar. They will also automatically qualify for the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League group stage, and if they have already qualified through their league performance, the berth reserved will be given to the team that was top of the 2019–20 Eredivisie (Ajax), the 11th-ranked association according to next season's access list.

The video assistant referee (VAR) system has been used in the competition from the play-off round onwards.

Liverpool were the defending champions. Both of the previous season's finalists, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool were eliminated in the round of 16, after losing to RB Leipzig and Atlético Madrid respectively.

Following the first four matches of the round of 16 second legs, the competition was postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe. The final, originally scheduled to take place on 30 May 2020, was officially postponed on 23 March 2020. A working group was set up to decide the calendar of the remainder of the season. On 17 June 2020, the UEFA announced that the quarter-finals, semi-finals, and final will be played in Portugal in August 2020.

Effects of the COVID-19 pandemic

See also: Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on football

The Round of 16 ties are played across four weeks, with the first legs being played across two weeks in February and the second legs across two weeks in March. Because of this the first leg ties were unaffected by the pandemic, but the second leg ties were affected in different ways. All of the four matches in the first week of fixtures went ahead but due to the increased severity of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain and France, Valencia's and PSG's home games were played behind closed doors. On 15 March, UEFA announced a halt to the competition meaning that the remaining second leg games would be postponed indefinitely. A taskforce was convened to reschedule the rest of the season. On 23 March, it was announced that the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey would no longer host the competition Final, originally scheduled for 30 May, but would host the 2021 Final instead.

On 17 June it was announced that the Champions League would return on 7 August and concluded on 23 August, with the rest of the tournament to be held in Portugal. The remainder of the competition would be played in a mini-tournament style with remaing fixtures to be played as single legged ties except for the Round of 16 fixtures where the first leg had already been played. All remaining ties of the competition will be played behind closed doors due to the remaining presence of the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe.

A total of 79 teams from 54 of the 55 UEFA member associations participate in the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League (the exception being Liechtenstein, which does not organise a domestic league).

  • Associations 5–6 each have three teams qualify.
  • Associations 7–15 each have two teams qualify.
  • Associations 16–55 (except Liechtenstein) each have one team qualify.
  • The winners of the 2018–19 UEFA Champions League and 2018–19 UEFA Europa League are each given an additional entry if they do not qualify for the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League through their domestic league.

Association ranking

For the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League, the associations are allocated places according to their 2018 UEFA country coefficients, which takes into account their performance in European competitions from 2013–14 to 2017–18.

Apart from the allocation based on the country coefficients, associations may have additional teams participating in the Champions League, as noted below:

  • (UCL) – Additional berth for UEFA Champions League title holders
  • (UEL) – Additional berth for UEFA Europa League title holders

    • The third-placed team of association 5 (France) entered the group stage instead of the third qualifying round.
    • The runners-up of associations 10 and 11 (Turkey and Austria) entered the third qualifying round instead of the second qualifying round.

Group stage

Main article: 2019–20 UEFA Champions League group stage

The draw for the group stage was held on 29 August 2019, 18:00 CEST, at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. The 32 teams were drawn into eight groups of four, with the restriction that teams from the same association cannot be drawn against each other. For the draw, the teams were seeded into four pots based on the following principles (introduced starting 2015–16 season):

  • Pot 1 contains the Champions League and Europa League title holders, and the champions of the top six associations based on their 2018 UEFA country coefficients. If either or both title holders were one of the champions of the top six associations, the champions of the next highest ranked association(s) are also seeded into Pot 1.
  • Pot 2, 3 and 4 contain the remaining teams, seeded based on their 2019 UEFA club coefficients.

In each group, teams play against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format. The group winners and runners-up advance to the round of 16, while the third-placed teams enter the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League round of 32. The matchdays are 17–18 September, 1–2 October, 22–23 October, 5–6 November, 26–27 November, and 10–11 December 2019.

The youth teams of the clubs that qualify for the group stage also participate in the 2019–20 UEFA Youth League on the same matchdays, where they compete in the UEFA Champions League Path (the youth domestic champions of the top 32 associations compete in a separate Domestic Champions Path until the play-offs).

A total of 16 national associations are represented in the group stage. Atalanta made their debut appearance in the group stage.

Knockout phase

Main article: 2019–20 UEFA Champions League knockout phase

In the knockout phase, teams play against each other over two legs on a home-and-away basis, except for the one-match final. The mechanism of the draws for each round is as follows:

  • In the draw for the round of 16, the eight group winners are seeded, and the eight group runners-up are unseeded. The seeded teams are drawn against the unseeded teams, with the seeded teams hosting the second leg. Teams from the same group or the same association cannot be drawn against each other.
  • In the draws for the quarter-finals onwards, there are no seedings, and teams from the same group or the same association can be drawn against each other.

On 17 June 2020, UEFA announced that due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, the final stages of the competition would feature a format change. The quarter-finals, semi-finals and final would be played in a single-leg format from 12 to 23 August 2020 at the Estádio da Luz and Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon, Portugal. The matches will tentatively be played behind closed doors, though spectators could be allowed subject to a review of the situation and the decisions of the national and local government.

Following the competition restart in August 2020, a maximum of five substitutions will be allowed, with a sixth allowed in extra time. However, each team will only be given three opportunities to make substitutions, with a fourth opportunity in extra time, excluding substitutions made at half-time, before the start of extra time and at half-time in extra time. This follows a proposal from FIFA and approval by IFAB to lessen the impact of fixture congestion.
