How are Champions League ties settled?
Ahead of this year’s competition, UEFA were relying on away goals to settle a tiebreaker in the quarter-finals and semi-finals. For example, if the home team lost the first leg 1-0 and then won the second leg 2-1 away, the total goals would be 2-2. However, the two away goals would win and earn them the nod in the next round.
This rule, which had been in place since 1965, was on full display in the 2019 semi-finals when Tottenham rallied 3-0 on aggregate to score three consecutive second-half goals in thrilling fashion against Ajax to qualify. for the Champions League final. .
However, this iconic – and sometimes controversial – way of settling a tie is now a thing of the past. Ahead of the 2021-22 Champions League, UEFA announced they were waiving away goals, opting for two 15-minute extra periods and penalty shootouts if necessary.

The final is confirmed for May 28 at State de Paris in Saint-Denis, a suburb just north of Paris. It is the third time in the tournament’s history that the venue has hosted the finals, the last time in 2006.
The State of Paris was actually UEFA’s third choice to host the final, a reflection of world events over the past two years.
Allianz Arena, home of Bayern Munich, originally won the bid to host the 2022 tournament. However, COVID-19 forced the association to move the finals from Istanbul to Portugal in consecutive years (2020, 2021 ), thereby displacing all of the intended applications.
Krestovsky Stadium (St Petersburg, Russia) was then to host in 2022, followed by Atatürk Olympic Stadium (Istanbul) in 2023, Wembley Stadium (London) in 2024 and Alianz Arena (Munich) in 2025.
Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, UEFA bare Saint Petersburg for hosting the honors and expelling all Russian teams from European competition. This came on the back of a wave of sanctions by the sport’s international governing bodies, including Fifawho banned the Russian national team from participating in the World Cup in Qatar.
