The UEFA Champions League marches on as 32 teams dream of lifting the trophy on May 28, 2022 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The competition is in the middle of its group stage which will whittle the field down to 16 teams that will advance to the knockout rounds consisting of two-leg, home-and-home series. In the knockout rounds beginning in February, the club that scores the most goals over the course of the two games advances to the next round. In a new twist, away goals scored will not be a tiebreaker beginning with the 2021-22 European season. The UEFA Champions League final is a single match played at a neutral venue.

Every match through to the final will be available for soccer fans in the USA. All the details follow below:
