KO Rounds Records

This page shows records in all knockout rounds, in which the seeding has been based on the club coefficients (all rounds prior Group Stages + all rounds in UEFA Cup except QF, SF and Final). For our purposes - seeded club was always that club with a bigger coefficient.

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% winning ratio in a seeded ties, but Valencia has played most ties from these teams. Numbers in bold brackets indicate won and lost ties (for example [15-0] means 15 won ties and 0 lost ties). Numbers in classic brackets indicate season. In case of upsets, numbers in brackets indicate club coefficient. Please note - biggest upsets by multiple don't include ties, in which the unseeded winner had very small coefficient only because its association was a new member of UEFA (for example KF Drita from Kosovo with coefficient 0,000 against FC Santa Coloma or Lincoln FC - both clubs coefficient 2,750 in 18/19).
