No, it's the significance of the entire event that made me do this! I can't wait. (:

In no way shape or form are Celtic even going to be close to getting a positive result in this... All on Juve when it comes nearer the time.

Does someone mind explaining the whole Champions League thing to me?

In easy terms, for someone who wasn't really watched football until recently

The winners of individual leagues in Europe (and in some of the larger leagues, the 2nd, 3rd & 4th placed teams) all qualify for the Champions League.

The winners of smaller European leagues (Scottish, Greek, lots of others) get put in a qualifying draw, essentially play-offs, to play alongside the bigger teams in the main Champions League draw. This process starts in late June/early July.

At the end of the process, 32 teams will remain, and be split in to 8 groups of 4 teams via a random draw. Each team plays it's other group members twice (home & away) and at the end of the 6 games the winners & runners up of the groups qualify for the knockout stages (16 teams will remain)

The 16 remaining team are then drawn randomly against each other, and play each other home and away until 2 teams are remaining. These two teams then play each other in the champions league final, in a one-off game in Mid-May to crown the European Champions.

The tournament has been running since 1955 under a couple of names. The current defending champions are Chelsea, but they got knocked out early this year, because they're absolutely awful.

I've probably missed stuff out, but I Hope this helps.

Damn, nice Angel

That helps a lot

What happens during the home/home games if each team takes a match with the same score. I.E. Celtic 2-1 Juve, Juve 2-1 Celtic. Because I assume they will use goal aggregate as the first tiebreak

If the scores are equal across both games (as in your example), then Extra Time will be played at the end of the 2nd match. Thats an extra 30 minutes of gameplay to settle the result. If at the end of extra time the scores are still level, then a penalty shootout will be used to determine the winner.

If however the scores are level after both games, but both games have different scores. (Celtic 2-1, Juve 1-0) Then the game is settled on "the away goals rule". This means that away goals count as double, and in this example, Juve would qualify because the scored a goal in Celtics home fixture.

That makes sense

This is a pretty sweet way to do a tournament

Kinda jelly

Could see myself getting pretty excited for some of these matches, not this one of course, think Celtic is in for some hurt, haha
