Where is the Champions League final 2022? Location of UCL showdown, date, kick off time and TV coverage in UK

Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and reigning champions, Chelsea will all hope to play in the Champions League final in Russia on 28 May 2022

The second round of group stage matches for the Champions League kicked off this week - and it did not disappoint.

Liverpool thrashed FC Porto 5-1 with Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino both scoring twice and Sadio Mané making up the fifth goal.

The other English side to play did not find quite such the same luck.

Manchester City lost 2-0 to Paris St-Germain and adding insult to injury, Lionel Messi scored his first goal for PSG against his former Manager totalling the number of Champions League goals he has scored to 121.

Lionel Messi scored his 121 Champions League goal and his first for PSG against Manchester City his former manager, Pep Guardiola.

The second night of the second round of group stages continues Wednesday 29 September with Manchester United taking on Villarreal, and Chelsea travelling to Turin. As reigning champions, Chelsea, will look to solidify their group stage position as they take on Juventus in a bid to win the cup for a third time.

Manchester United lost their first match to Young Boys in the first round of the group stage and will therefore look for a defiant win against Villarreal if they are to keep their Champions League hopes alive.

The rest of 2021 will see out the remainder of the group stage matches, with the next match days to take place on Tuesday 19 October and Wednesday 20 October, before the knockout stages begin on 15 February 2022.

Manchester United are the only English club not to have won a match in the Group stage of the Champions League.
