As the new season gets underway, fans are starting to ask – can Liverpool win the Champions League? Liverpool fans expect success every season, but the Champions League is the most prestigious club football competition in the world. This guide will look at Liverpool’s history in the competition and their chances of success.

How have they done in the past?

Liverpool has featured in the Champions League for a total of 16 seasons, making their debut in its inaugural year (1992/93). However, if you include the European Cup (the precursor to the Champions League), they have a much more impressive pedigree. As every Liverpool fan will know, they won the competition in 2005 and 2019. With that in mind, they are considered one of the stronger teams in the competition.

Are they likely to win it this year?

Although Liverpool has a great history in the competition, they are not considered a favorite for the competition this time round. With Messi recently joining Mbappe and Neymar at PSG, they are going to face some stiff competition. Winning their 3rd Champions League competition will require some excellent form and a healthy dose of luck. For example, they will likely fare much better in a group that has them up against a team from Eredivisie or Liga NOS than they would against a group with La Liga and Bundesliga giants.

Are Liverpool likely to go far?

Yes! Liverpool made it into the quarter-final last year and has a very strong team. They have every chance of making it to the top four at least. After that, it could go any way.

Who will be in the group stage?

The group stage of the Champions League consists of 26 teams that have gained automatic entry plus six teams from a play-off round. Here are the 26 teams that are already guaranteed to play.

How does qualifying work?

After the draw, there will be four groups containing eight teams each. The top two teams from each group will qualify for the Champions League knockout rounds. The four third-placed teams in the group stage will also advance to a separate competition known as the UEFA Europa League.

Where will the final take place?

The 2022 final will take place at the Saint Petersburg Stadium. The venue on Krestovsky Island was designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, whose vision was for a spaceship that had landed on the shores of the Gulf of Finland. It has been home to Zenit since 2017. The stadium will have a capacity of 64,000 and state-of-the-art facilities for VIPs.


Liverpool has every chance of winning the Champions League. However, nothing in this competition is guaranteed. They will go up against the best club teams in the world if they’re to make it to the final.
