2021–22 UEFA Champions League
This is the 67th season of Europe’s premier football club tournament organized by UEFA. Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg will host the final of the tournament.
UEFA approved the proposal to end the practice of the away goals rule in all UEFA club competitions. This means if in a two-legged tie two teams score the same amount of aggregate goals, the winner of the tie would not be decided by the number of away goals scored. They have to play 30 minutes of extra time. And if the scores of two teams continue to have the same amount of goals, a penalty shoot-out will be the ultimate option to decide the winner.
