The final was played on 22 May 2010, at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, home ground of Real Madrid, in Madrid, Spain.[1] The final was won by Italian club Internazionale, who beat German side Bayern Munich 2–0. Internazionale went on to represent Europe in the 2010 FIFA Club World Cup, beating Congolese side TP Mazembe 3–0 in the final, and played in the 2010 UEFA Super Cup against Europa League winners Atlético Madrid, losing 2–0.

Barcelona were the defending champions, but were eliminated by eventual winners Internazionale in the semi-finals.[2][3]

  • The champions of association 16 (Switzerland) were promoted from the second qualifying round to the third qualifying round.

Qualifying phase[edit]

In a new system for the Champions League, there are two separate qualifying tournaments.[6] The Champions Path (which start from the first qualifying round) is for clubs which won their domestic league and did not automatically qualify for the group stage, while the Non-Champions Path (which start from the third qualifying round) is for clubs which did not win their domestic league and did not automatically qualify for the group stage.

In the qualifying phase and the play-off round, teams play against each other over two legs on a home-and-away basis.

The draw for the first and second qualifying rounds, conducted by UEFA President Michel Platini and UEFA General Secretary David Taylor, was held on 22 June 2009, and the draw for the third qualifying round, conducted by UEFA Competitions Director Giorgio Marchetti and Head of Club Competitions Michael Heselschwerdt, was held on 17 July 2009. For the draws, clubs were separated into seeded and unseeded teams based on their club coefficient. Because the draws for the second and third qualifying rounds took place before the previous round was completed, the teams were seeded assuming the seeded side in the previous round would be victorious.

First qualifying round[edit]

The first legs were played on 30 June and 1 July, and the second legs were played on 7 and 8 July 2009.

Team 1 Agg. Team 2 1st leg 2nd leg
Tre Fiori San Marino 2–2 (4–5p) Andorra Sant Julià 1–1 1–1 (aet)
Hibernians Malta 0–6 Montenegro Mogren 0–2 0–4

Order of legs reversed after original draw

Second qualifying round[edit]

The first legs were played on 14 and 15 July, and the second legs were played on 21 and 22 July 2009.

Partizan's 8–0 win over Rhyl in the second leg equalled the record for the largest margin of victory in the current Champions League format.

As of November 2009, the second leg between Stabæk and Tirana was under investigation by UEFA and German authorities for possible match-fixing.[7]

The draw for the group stage was held at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco on 27 August 2009. A total of 32 teams were drawn into eight groups of four. Teams were divided into four pots, based on their club coefficient. Clubs from the same pot or the same association cannot be drawn into the same group.

In each group, teams played against each other home-and-away. The matchdays were 15–16 September, 29–30 September, 20–21 October, 3–4 November, 24–25 November, and 8–9 December 2009. The top two in each group advanced to the knockout phase, and the third-placed teams entered the round of 32 of the 2009–10 UEFA Europa League.

Based on Article 7.05 in the UEFA regulations, if two or more teams are equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following criteria are applied to determine the rankings:[5]

  1. higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the teams in question;
  2. superior goal difference from the group matches played among the teams in question;
  3. higher number of goals scored away from home in the group matches played among the teams in question;
  4. superior goal difference from all group matches played;
  5. higher number of goals scored;
  6. higher number of coefficient points accumulated by the club in question, as well as its association, over the previous five seasons.

AZ, Wolfsburg, Standard Liège, Zürich, APOEL, Rubin Kazan, Unirea Urziceni and Debrecen made their debut in the group stage.

Final[edit]

The final of the 2009–10 UEFA Champions League was played at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, Spain, on 22 May 2010, between Germany's FC Bayern Munich and Italy's Internazionale.[10] The stadium, home of Real Madrid, has hosted three previous European Cup finals, in 1957, 1969 and 1980.[11] It was the first time that a UEFA Champions League final has been played on a Saturday night.[12] England's Howard Webb was appointed to referee the Final.[13] The two clubs competing in the Final had each won their domestic league and cup competitions, meaning that the winner became only the sixth club in Europe to have achieved a continental treble, and the first such club from their respective countries. It was also the second consecutive treble, following that of Barcelona in the previous season.
