The 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League group stage is officially underway and the march begins to the final on May 28, 2022 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Only half of the field of 32 teams will survive the group stage. The top two teams in each group (A through H) will advance to the Round of 16 in February. The third-place teams receive a consolation prize: passage to the Europa League knockout stage, where they will face Europa League group runners-up.

If you’re familiar with international soccer, you know how the group stage works: Each team faces the other three teams at home and on the road for a total of six group matches. Each match is a chance to pick up points (three for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss).

The teams are ranked within their group based on their points total. If two or more teams are even on points, the first tiebreakers are: (1) points in matches among tied teams, (2) goal difference in matches among tied teams, and (3) goals scored in matches among tied teams.

The group standings and schedule below will be updated throughout the tournament:

PTS=Points, GP=Games Played, W=Wins, L=Losses, D=Draws, GF=Goals For (scored), GA=Goals Against (conceded), GD=Goal Difference (between goals scored and conceded)

The full list of UEFA Champions League group stage tiebreakers follow below:
• points obtained in group matches played among teams in question
• superior goal difference from group matches played among teams in question
• goals scored in group matches played among teams in question
• away goals scored in all group matches
• away wins in all group matches
• disciplinary points total based only on yellow and red cards

One twist to the tiebreaker rules: If there are three or more teams deadlocked on points and tiebreakers Nos. 1-3 help to separate one or more of those teams, then tiebreakers Nos. 1-3 are reapplied to any remaining teams that are still tied before moving on to Nos. 4-10.
