Guerreiro to miss Real Madrid clash

6.5.24 Bayern

Bayern Munich star Raphael Guerreiro will miss Wednesday's Champions League match against Real Madrid due a ligament injury he sustained against Stuttgart on Saturday.

Jamal Musiala trained with the team on Sunday despite picking up a knock which forced him off the field against Stuttgart. Musiala was joined in training by centre-back Matthijs de Ligt, who has missed the last two games through injury.

Sebastien Haller back in team training

30.4.24 Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund striker Sebastien Haller returned to team training on Monday. The Ivory Coast international has been sidelined with an ankle injury that was re-aggravated after his return from the African Cup of Nations. While Haller's return to fitness is a great sign, it seems that the PSG game will come a little too early for the striker, who is unlikely to feature in the first leg.

Bayern quintet return to training

30.4.24 Bayern

Bayern Munich have been given a significant injury boost ahead of their Champions League semi-final clash against Real Madrid on Tuesday night. Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane, Konrad Laimer, Serge Gnabry and Dayot Upamecano were all pictured in training on Monday as Bayern prepare for their game against Carlo Ancelotti's side.

Terzic confident Hummels will be fit for PSG tie

29.4.24 Dortmund

Edin Terzic is confident that Mats Hummels will be able to face Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday despite being forced off against RB Leipzig due to a cut on his shin. "It has just been treated. He also already looks much better now, so we can assume that he should be fine to play on Wednesday," Terzic said.

In addition to Hummels, Borussia Dortmund will also be sweating on the fitness of Donyell Malen and Ian Maatsen. The Dutch duo have been dealing with muscular problems.

League format : UEFA Champions League 2023/2024

The UEFA Champions League is probably the greatest international club competition in the world. The league has undergone a number of changes since the old knock-out tournament was upgraded with group stages in 1993. The current format was introduced in the 2003/04 season.

Under this format, after three qualifying rounds for clubs who do not qualify for direct entry, 32 teams play one group stage. There are eight groups of four clubs, each team playing each other home and away for a total of six games in the group. The top two teams from each group progress to the knock-out stage, the eight third-placed teams move into a secondary competition, the UEFA Europa League, while the eight fourth-placed teams are eliminated.

The matches in the knock-out stages are played over two legs. The teams are paired up and play each other at home and away, with the club scoring the greater aggregate of goals going on to the next round. The winners of the two semi-finals play the Champions League Final, which is a single match on a venue decided by UEFA.
