The Road to Wembley

 

The draw for the group stage was held in Monaco on 30 August 2012. The 32 teams were allocated into four pots based on their 2012 UEFA club coefficients, with the title holders, Chelsea, being placed in Pot 1 automatically. They were drawn into eight groups of four, with the restriction that teams from the same association cannot be drawn against each other.

 

In each group, teams will play against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format. The matchdays will be 18–19 September, 2–3 October, 23–24 October, 6–7 November, 20–21 November, and 4–5 December 2012. The group winners and runners-up will advance to the round of 16, while the third-placed teams will enter the round of 32 of the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League.

 

A total of 17 national associations are represented in the group stage. Montpellier, Nordsjælland and Málaga are set to make their debut appearances in the group stages.

 

The draw for the round of 16 will be held on 14 December 2012. In the knockout phase, teams will play against each other over two legs on a home-and-away basis, except for the one-match final.

 

The final will be played on 25 May 2013 at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
