What should the Champions League mode look like from 2024?
Completely different. Instead of 36 teams as before, who are no longer distributed to eight groups before the knockout rounds, but will all play together in a league. In the preliminary round, each team plays eight games against eight different opponents (four home games, four away games), whereby the opponents are drawn from four setting pots in advance. After that, the top eight in the 36 league qualify directly for the round of 16. The teams in places 9 to 24 play the remaining eight round of rounds in a new play-off round (with first and second leg).
will there be more games?
However. A Champions League season currently consists of 125 games from the group phase, from 2024 it is 225, i.e. a whopping 100 more. The necessary dates for the additional rounds are to be created in December and January.
Who will receive the four additional Champions League places?
A fixed starting place goes to the third place in the respective association, which is in fifth place in the UEFA 5 annual ranking. This is currently the French Ligue 1. Two more tickets go to the two national associations that have cut the most successful in the previous season. The score of an association is divided by the number of participating teams, so that even smaller associations also have the opportunity to get one of the places. The fourth new participant results from the increase in the “Champions Path” in the actual CL qualification. In this play-off round, five teams instead of four teams are determined for the new 36 field.
When do the games of the Champions League take place from 2024?
The UEFA continues to call days during the week, i.e. Tuesday and Wednesday for the Champions League, Thursday continues to be added to the Europa League and Europa Conference League. With this maintenance, UEFA wants to underline the importance of the national leagues with its regular season on weekends.
What does the money distribution in the Champions League look like from 2024?
This is still completely open – so far it has not even been clarified how the European Cup money from the 2021/22 season will be released when the Europa Conference League starts a third competition in addition to the Champions and Europa League.
does the Europa League also change in 2024?
Yes, although it will change significantly from the 2021/22 season. From 2024 the Europa League and the new Europa Conference League will be planned with 36 teams, which also play the participants of the knockout phase in a large league via “Swiss model”. Each team is said to contest eight games (Europa League) and six games (Europa Conference League) in the preliminary round.
Hinteregger had injured the thigh early on in the semi-final second leg of the Europa League against West Ham United and had to be replaced in the seventh minute. On Friday afternoon, Eintracht Frankfurt now announced that the Austrian will be out for the rest of the season due to the injury.
According to coach Oliver Glasner, the 29-year-old suffered “a greater muscle injury”. “It’s a shame for Martin and for us,” said Glasner.
Hinteregger is already missing against Borussia Mönchengladbach on Sunday (3:30 p.m., live! At Eintracht Frankfurt) – and also on May 18 (9 p.m., live! At Eintracht Frankfurt) when Eintracht meets the Glasgow Rangers in the final of the Europa League.
In this season, Hinteregger has 27 missions in the Bundesliga and nine in the Europa League.
plays with mask?
In addition, midfield strategist Djibril Sow broke his nose during the game. It is only at short notice whether the Swiss international can appear with an specially made mask against Borussia Mönchengladbach. “We won’t throw it in if we think that there is still danger in default,” said Glasner.
Raffael Borré and Jens Petter Hauge could also be spared, with “a little pinched”. The coach emphasized: “I will not take a risk of muscle injuries.” That is why Jesper Lindström will not yet be used in the thigh against Gladbach after his muscle injury suffered at the first leg in London. With a view to the final in the Europa League, Glasner is confident: “We have justified hope that he will be fit until the final.”
Eintracht Frankfurt hovers on cloud seven in the Europa League, but so far, Danny da Costa has not been able to contribute to the European high -altitude flight of the eagles. Only two missions in the group phase, more did not jump out for the 28-year-old. Even in the league, the defensive man only plays a subordinate role in the current season: ten games, only four over the full distance. The result: After the season, Costa leaves the SGE and returns to Mainz.
There Costa was on loan for half a year in the past season and “not only leaves athletic traces” during this time, as 05 sports director Martin Schmidt emphasizes: “He is an uncomfortably experienced, strong defensive all-rounder and also A great person who immediately brought himself into the team with his good character and mentality and lived the values of Mainz 05. “
So it was not surprising that the contact between Mainz 05 and the defender, who had run 16 times for the FSV, “always remained tight even after the loan”. Now Costa comes to the Bruchweg free of charge and has signed a contract until 2025.
a lot of praise and “a special DNA”
“My time at Mainz 05 was short, but it is definitely one of the most exciting and most special of my career,” said Da Costa, who was the experience of 131 Bundesliga, two Champions League, 27 Europa League and 17 DFB Bring cup games for Leverkusen, Frankfurt, Mainz and Ingolstadt. “What we achieved together as a team, but also as a whole club in this six months, was exceptional. Mainz 05 has a special DNA, sporty and above all on together,” says Costa only praising words for his new old club.
There is hardly a player who fits Mainz 05 better than Danny from the mentality.
Coach Bo Svensson is pleased, “that Danny has promised us. It is no secret that he played a very important role in relegation last year. There is hardly a player who fits Mainz 05 better in terms of mentality than Danny “, said Svensson.
At the top is now all of the mathematically clear: FC Bayern is a master, even the next Champions League scorer canon can plan Robert Lewandowski a long time now. Coach Julian Nagelsmann has already announced that it also helps the last three game days to help a few talents at the deployment of deployment. At least one possible goal: The 100 goal mark is still within reach for 92 goals, the self-made Bundesliga record (101, 1971/72) too. In the previous year, the counter stopped at 99.
Certainly qualified for the Champions League is also Borussia Dortmund . And also for the runner -up championship – which had gone to Leipzig in the previous year – there is not much missing: With eight points ahead of the third Leverkusen, two points are enough from the last three appearances, including a guest appearance at relegated Fürth.
Leipzig still has three destinations – Freiburg still three direct duels
Bayer 04 Leverkusen has a firm eye on the Champions League since the weekend. Three points and the significantly better goal difference separate the SEOANE team from Fifth Freiburg – which she meets on matchday 34. A victory in direct duel could be enough for a top four position. However, the sixth Union Berlin and even the seventh 1. FC Köln are still lurking.
The best goal difference after Bayern is currently rb Leipzig . It could still become a trump card in the race for the premier class. After the painful 1: 2 defeat against Union Berlin, two points ahead of Freiburg, four on Union and five in Cologne must be defended for the Saxons. With the opponents Gladbach (A), Augsburg (H) and Bielefeld (A) this works well, but Leipzig has to play a European League semi-final in between-and then the DFB Cup final. As a European League winner, RB would also be safe in the Champions League.
For the SC Freiburg everything is still in the season finale-from Champions League qualification plus DFB Cup victory to nothing. However, the Breisgauer can hardly gamble away from the European Cup in itself: because the lead over the Each Hoffenheim is six points and because seventh place is likely to be enough for the Europa Conference League. With Hoffenheim (A), Union (H) and Leverkusen (A), the SC only plays against direct European competitors.
The 1. FC Union Berlin . In the case of two outstanding home games against Fürth and Bochum (and a guest appearance at Tabelnachbar Freiburg), the iron can hope to “rise” this time from the Europa Conference to the Europa League. In addition to the fifth, the sixth place is likely to be sufficient this season.
for Cologne also speak the opponents – in Hoffenheim it is also about Hoeneß
The 1. FC Köln benefit, who waves the European Cup comeback after five years. After three wins in a row, some FC fans have already calculated what is still missing until fourth place – there are five points, in view of the comparatively weak goal difference (+2), ultimately even six. Places five to seven are more realistic, which – because of the constellation in the DFB Cup final – all have a European Cup ticket. What speaks next to the form for the Baumgart team: with Augsburg (A), Wolfsburg (H) and Stuttgart (A), cellar children are waiting for their fate in the case of VfL and VfB.
The TSG Hoffenheim , still champions League candidate in winter, threatens to gamble the European Cup after the recent misery of six winless games. Even the seventh place is already three points away, and it still goes against Freiburg (h), Leverkusen (h) and Gladbach (A). Sebastian Hoeneß ‘future is also at stake: he is still bound until 2023, and it is considered a unwritten law not to go into a new season with a coach with a leakage contract.
For the table ninth Eintracht Frankfurt , the focus is no longer on the Bundesliga in the final weeks of the season. The big dream is the European League title in front of the semi-finals against West Ham, which would also be rewarded with a place in the Champions League group phase. Is that good news for the last three league opponents Leverkusen (A), Gladbach (h) and Mainz (A)?
eight options for Gladbach – Bochum are still missing two points
The 1. FSV Mainz 05 , the two -worst away team in the league, already has the relegation and no more prospects on Europe, but at the latest after 0: 5 in Wolfsburg, but still make up for something. And as is known, every place in the final table is worth TV money.
This is also the last “hard” goal for Borussia Mönchengladbach on the remaining match days when Leipzig (h), Frankfurt (A) and Hoffenheim (H) are waiting. From eighth to 15th place everything is still possible for the foals – curious, so exactly the palette, which is meaningless.
The VfL Wolfsburg is almost saved. At nine points ahead of the third last Stuttgart, the wolves are already running a point from the games in Stuttgart, Cologne and against Bavaria. The jump into the upper half of the table is still realistic at the end of a turbulent season.
The VfL Bochum is also almost at the goal of relegation – only he would have a completely different status at the promoted one than with the Wolfsburgers. Even if the competition gains consistently, the Bochumers only need a maximum of two points against Dortmund (A), Bielefeld (H) and Union (a). You have not been able to descend directly since the weekend.
Hertha can save himself on matchday 32 – VfB has to look down
In view of the passable goal difference, this also applies to the table-14. FC Augsburg , who can also secure the league remaining on matchday 32. A victory against Cologne would be sufficient – one in Leipzig (33rd) or against Fürth (34th) would alternatively go. Due to the low point distances up, the FCA can also hope for improvements in the TV ranking.
Before the season, the goals were completely different, but if it were over, Hertha BSc would certainly not have any objections. The 2-0 victory against pursuer Stuttgart means: against Bielefeld (a), Mainz (h) and Dortmund (a) at most four points to avert both direct descent and the relegation. If VfB loses against Wolfsburg in parallel, nothing could happen to Berliners with a win in Bielefeld. Then there would also be the two -worst goal difference in the league without consequences.
The VfB Stuttgart is where it was already at the end of the first half of the season: on the relegation place. With four points behind Hertha, outstanding games against Wolfsburg (H), Bavaria (A) and Cologne (h) and the form of Sunday, the Matarazzo-Elf must even look down: Bielefeld only has two points less (but that Clearly worse goal difference). At least four points are still needed to have a mathematical chance of direct relegation at all. It is not good news for VfB that Hertha and Bielefeld meet directly on the 32nd matchday. Both cannot win, but they don’t lose either.
The weak Arminia has lost again after the coaching change and no longer stayed in the league in his own hands. With a win against Hertha on Saturday, she would suddenly be fully in the race again. There is also an opportunity against Bochum (A) and Leipzig (H) to climb at least to the relegation place.
And the SpVgg Greuther Fürth ? It will leave the Bundesliga again after only one year. In the season finale, the future second division team still offers two opportunities not to say goodbye without an away win. It still goes to Union Berlin and FC Augsburg.
Strikerstar Mohamed Salah continues to open his future at the FC Liverpool. “I do not know, I have another year contract,” said the Egyptian in a conversation with the British football magazine “Fourfourtwo”. Despite months of negotiations between the club and players, the attacker has not yet signed a new working paper.
“I think the fans know what I want, but in the contract it’s not just about the money,” says Salah. Allegedly, he should demand a salary of just under 600,000 euros – per week. Salah would be the highest paid player of the English Premier League. Rumors according to the club this sum is too high.
But the 29-year-old makes the fans of the table seconds also hope for a whereabouts. “This club meant me a lot. I enjoyed my football here more than anywhere else,” said Salah: “It’s like a family.”
Salah moved from the AS ROM to Liverpool in 2017. In so far 245 lots he achieved 155 goals. With the team of Jürgen Klopp he won the Champions League and the English championship, this season Liverpool is aiming for the historic Quadruple from Championship, Champions League and both Cup victories in England.

According to the crashing Champions League against Real Madrid, the future of Mauricio Pochettino as head coach at Paris Saint-Germain is more uncertain than ever. The Argentinian, who had taken the office of Thomas Tuchel in January 2021, should finally lead the Sheikh club for a longcoming triumph in the premier class.
After the Parisian rodemble failed last year in the semi-final at Manchester City, this season was already in the secondary final against Real Madrid. The renewed failure in the premier class seems to cost the ex-professional at the latest at the end of the season the job.
For several months, the former real-coach Zinédine Zidane has been acting as successor, but now the French Leagues line “L’équipe” brings a candidate list with equal ten potential successors into play. Next to Zidane are on the list more prominent names.
Among other things, the Former BVB coach Lucien Favre. The Swiss was responsible for the revier club from 2018 to 2020, but did not have the success desired. Favre was also active in France, from 2016 to 2018, the 64-year-old trained the OGC Nice in Ligue 1.
PSG: comes Diego Simeone from Atlético Madrid?
However, an employment at the French top club PSG should be unlikely, Favre has never exercised an absolute top team. The reigning French Cup winner also preferably preferred the glamorous solutions on the head coach chair in recent years.
There should be more Diego Simeone a possible successor to Mauricio Pochettino. The compatriot is also on the coach list of Paris Saint-Germain. Simeone has been chef coach of Atlético Madrid since 2011, and in the summer he extended until 2024. Nevertheless, a farewell is considered a conceivable, the Argentinian should seek another challenge after eleven years.
According to the “l’équipe” are next to Zidane, Simeone and Favre seven more candidates on the list. These are Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus), Mikel Arteta (Arsenal), Antonio Conte (Tottenham Hotspur), Erik Ten Hag (Ajax), Christophe Galtier (OGC Nice), Simone Inzaghi (Inter Milan) and Thiago Motta (Spezia Calcio ).
