Champions League dates 2023 – Quarter final, semi final and Final 

Published

on

The Champions League dates for the 2022/23 season were released before the start of the campaign, even as we wait to see which team would emerge winners.

 

Defending champions Real Madrid are expected to defend their crown, a competition they’ve won for a record fourteen times. The Los Blancos qualified for the round of 16 and were drawn against Premier League side Liverpool.

 

Due to the World Cup in Qatar, which took place in December last year, the dates for the UCL had a significant change from its traditional finals that usually takes place around April and May. This year, the final will take place in June.

 

To help you keep up with the schedule for your teams in the UEFA Champions League this season, we’ve brought you the dates for the fixtures across every round.

 

Champions League dates 2023 – Quarter final, semi final and Final 

 

Preliminary and qualifying round

  • July 5/6 and 12/13
  • July 19/20 and 26/27
  • August 2/3 and 9

The preliminary round began in June last year for the lowest-placed teams in the competition. That is teams from leagues with the lowest UEFA coefficient.

 

Group stages

  • September 6-7
  • September 13-14
  • October 4-5
  • October 11-12
  • October 25-26
  • November 1-2

 

Champions League round of 16

  • February 14-15, 2023
  • February 21-22, 2023
  • March 7-8, 2023
  • March 14-15, 2023

Matches will be played in midweek (Tuesday and Wednesday nights) just as other rounds of the competition.

This is arguably one of the most complex parts of the competition, where some European football powerhouses could head for the exit door early. The round of 16 would produce teams that would go on to qualify for the quarter-finals, which were expected to be more challenging than this round.

 

It is a two-legged format without an away goal rule that UEFA had abolished. Meaning if the two teams end the round on aggregate scoreline, the tie will be taken to penalties.

 

Champions League Quarter finals 2023

At the end of the round of 16 fixtures, a date will be announced for draws to be held for the quarter-finals. It’ll occur almost immediately after this round’s fixtures have ended or concluded.

 

  • April 11-12, 2023
  • April 18-19, 2023

 

Champions League Semi final 2023

 

The Champions League semi final first leg will be played on the second week of May 2023 between the 9th and 10th, while the second leg clash will be played on the third week between the 16th and 17th. It only has an interval of one week for teams to reset.

  • May 9-10, 2023
  • May 16-17, 2023

 

Champions League finals 2022/23 date

The Champions League final for the 2022/23 season will be played on Saturday, June 10th, 2023 Istanbul, Turkey.

 

What are the odds, and who could win the UCL title this year?

Title hopefuls Paris Saint-Germain were handed a shock defeat over two legs by a determined Bayern Munich side, ending the hopes of the Parisians.

 

Premier League highest spenders, Chelsea, got it right as they overturned Borussia Dortmund’s advantage to advance to the quarter finals at the expense of the German Bundesliga side. Benfica also made it throughout by strolling past Club Brugge.

 

Unfortunately, Tottenham Hotspur failed to break a resistive AC Milan side who held on to their 1-0 advantage at San Siro to advance to the last eight following the scoreless draw at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

 

In the remaining fixtures, Liverpool will look to overturn a three-goal deficit at Santiago Bernabéu against Real Madrid after losing the first leg 5-3 at Anfield. Other teams vying for a place in the quarter finals included Napoli, Eintracht Frankfurt, Manchester City, Porto, and RB Leipzig.

Chelsea, Benfica, AC Milan, Bayern Munich

 

Teams in the race: Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City, RB Leipzig, FC Porto, Inter Milan, Napoli, and Eintracht Frankfurt.

 

Real Madrid

The Los Blancos produced a five-star performance at Anfield to hold the advantage ahead of the second leg. The Spanish giants came from two goals down to win the game 5-3.

Liverpool

Although the Reds have struggled this season, the championship league remains a competition they’ve had more success than any other English club.

RB Leipzig

The German Bundesliga side earned a 1-1 draw in the first leg and could cause an upset in Manchester.

Manchester City

The Cityzens could manage a draw on the road. Pep’s side is expected to go all out in the second leg.

Inter Milan and FC Porto

Inter won the first leg 1-0, as the battle is expected in Portugal.

Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt

The Italians have a two-goal advantage and will struggle to pass the hurdle that awaits them in Germany.
