Group Stage Records

This page shows records in all Group Stages except Champions League 2nd round GS in seasons 99/00 - 02/03, because seeding at this stage was not based only on club coefficients, but also on the positions in 1st round GS. Seeded teams in GS have been those seeded in first two Pots (+ Pot 3 in case of UEFA Cup). Clubs, which have finished on a 3rd position in CL GS are considered as eliminated team.

If more clubs or associations have got same statistics, clubs / associations with most appearances will be listed. For example there are many clubs with 100% seeded winning ratio, but Real Madrid has played GS most times from these teams. Numbers in bold brackets indicate advances and eliminations (for example [20-0] means 20 progresses for the next round and 0 eliminations). Numbers in classic brackets indicate season. In case of biggest surprises (which show smallest coefficients of teams advanced from GS / biggest coefficients of teams eliminated in GS), numbers in brackets indicate club coefficient.
