This is the end of the Champions League as we know it.  These are the details of the revolution

For more than 20 years, the format of the Champions League has remained the same: 32 teams playing in the group stage, divided into eight groups of four teams. The best two teams from each group played in the 1/8 finals (the group winners were seeded, the second teams were unseeded), and the third team was “relegated” to the Europa League. The only relatively minor change in recent years was the fact that the champions of the best countries were in the first basket (along with the winners of the Champions League and Europa League). For this reason, it happened that Paris Saint-Germain or Barcelona were relegated to the second basket and had a slightly more difficult group stage.

But the changes are now revolutionary, and the most serious since 1999.
