Champions League qualifying fixtures: Live stream and kick off times
The 2022/23 Champions League is underway, with the first qualifying round taking centre stage.
On May 28, Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 1-0 in the final with Vinicius Junior’s goal deciding the contest at Stade de France.
Following a remarkable run that included gobsmacking comebacks against Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City, Los Blancos claimed their 14th triumph in Europe’s premier club competition.
Less than a month later, qualifying commenced for this season’s tournament with 52 teams competing for the six remaining spots in the group phase.
The preliminary round consisted of four teams competing over semi-finals and a final, with Icelandic outfit Vikingur Reykjavik the last ones standing.
And there are some familiar teams to keep an eye out for during the first qualifying round, which commences on July 5.
Among them are Moldovan side Sheriff Tiraspol, who notably shocked eventual champions Madrid during last season’s group stage.
Other notable names include Ludogorets Razgrad, who qualified in dramatic fashion in 2014, as well as CFR Cluj, Ferencvaros, Malmo and Qarabag.
Meanwhile, reigning Norwegian champions Bodo/Glimt will be hoping for another memorable campaign on the continent.
Indeed, they thumped Jose Mourinho’s Roma, who eventually lifted the trophy, 6-1 on the way to reaching the Europa Conference League quarter-finals.
