The BBC Sport European Champions Final, the Champions League’s equivalent to the UEFA Europa League, is the top domestic competition in Europe and the world.

It features the European elite from 17 teams, competing in five rounds of 32 matches.

The top two teams from each round advance to the next round.

The winner of each round of the Champions Leagues is invited to play the semi-finals of the Europa League.

The Europa League is a four-team competition featuring the top two from each of the three groups.

The Europa League has the following rules: Each of the four groups play each other in a round-robin format, with the top four teams advancing to the final, and the remaining teams playing a double-elimination tournament.

The four groups are seeded by their final place in the group stage.

The quarter-finals are played in the same round-robins, with a top four team playing in the round-finals.

The semi-final is played in a double round robin format, where a top two team from each group advances to the semi final. 

There are six teams in each of Europe’s four qualifying groups, which are drawn in stages based on the finalised group stage result. 

The semi- and final round robins are played by a single round robiner, which is drawn in a best-of-three format. 

Each qualifying group advances one round, while the semi finals and final are played as best-out-of -3 rounds.

The Champions League is the oldest European competition in football, having been first established in 1899.
