Teams in Champions League final: Liverpool vs. Real Madrid
Of the 80 teams that entered the 67th edition of the Champions League, only two remain.
Liverpool and Real Madrid stand above the rest, ready to battle for the 2022 title.
Where is the Champions League final?
The 2022 UEFA Champions League final will be held at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, France. The stadium is just minutes north of downtown Paris.
This year's original host venue selection was Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey. However, in 2020 UEFA announced that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all finals venues would be pushed back a year, meaning Istanbul was moved from 2022 to 2023, and the Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg, Russia was tabbed to host the 2022 final.
Then, in February 2022, UEFA announced that due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Saint Petersburg would no longer host the Champions League final. Instead, the final was moved to Saint-Denis.
This year's match will be the first Champions League final held in France since 2006, when Barcelona defeated Arsenal 2-1 in comeback fashion.
Stade de France hosted the 2000 Champions League final, which saw Real Madrid defeat fellow Spanish side Valencia 3-0 behind goals from Fernando Morientes, Steve McManaman, and Raul.
The stadium also hosted the 1998 FIFA World Cup final which saw the French national team defeat Brazil 3-0 to win the title. The stadium was christened in 1998 as Zinedine Zidane scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win for France over Spain.

What happens if Champions League final ends in a tie?
If the Champions League final finishes with the scoreline level after 90 minutes plus stoppage time, the match will proceed to extra time. The teams will play two 15-minute halves of extra time.
After the extra 30 minutes, if the scoreline is still level, the teams would advance to a penalty shootout.
Each team would take a minimum of five penalties each, and if the shootout score is level, they advance to sudden death penalties until a winner is determined.
The last Champions League final to reach a penalty shootout was in 2016 at the San Siro when Real Madrid defeated bitter rivals Atletico Madrid 5-3 after a 1-1 draw. Juanfran missed his team's fourth spot-kick, and Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to deliver the winner for Real. srfwe
