Road to the final

The UEFA Women's Champions League comprises a qualifying group stage, four rounds of two-legged knockout ties and a one-off final.

Qualifying round
The eight teams entering as league runners-up and the lower-ranked champion clubs, the exact number depending on the overall entry, compete in a number of four-team one-venue mini-tournaments hosted by one of the competitors. The top team from each group progresses.

Knockout phase
The qualifying round winners join the teams given a bye past that stage in the round of 32. From hereon the competition consists of two-legged knockout ties, continuing with the round of 16, which is drawn along with the last 32. The draw for the remainder of the competition is then made, with quarter-finals and semi-finals played over two legs. If scores are level after 90 or 120 minutes of the second leg, the team with the most away goals wins, otherwise a penalty shoot-out is held.

The final is a one-off match held two nights before the men's UEFA Champions League final in the same city. This season's competition concludes in London on Thursday 26 May.

Further details, including the criteria for separating teams that finish level on points in a group, can be found in the official competition regulations.
