The 2018–19 UEFA Champions League was the 64th season of Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 27th season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs' Cup to the UEFA Champions League.
The final will be played at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, Spain, between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool. It will be the second all-English final after the 2008 final, which was contested between Manchester United and Chelsea in Moscow. The winners of the 2018–19 UEFA Champions League will earn the right to play against the winners of the 2018–19 UEFA Europa League in the 2019 UEFA Super Cup. They will also automatically qualify for the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League group stage. As both finalists have already qualified for the group stage through their league performance, the berth reserved will be given to the champions of the 2018–19 Austrian Bundesliga (Red Bull Salzburg), the 11th-ranked association according to next season's access list.
For the first time, the video assistant referee (VAR) system was used in the competition from the round of 16 onward.
Real Madrid were the defending champions, having won each of the last three titles. Real was eliminated by Ajax in the round of 16.

Each tie in the knockout phase, apart from the final, is played over two legs, with each team playing one leg at home. The team that scores more goals on aggregate over the two legs advances to the next round. If the aggregate score is level, the away goals rule is applied, i.e. the team that scores more goals away from home over the two legs advances. If away goals are also equal, then extra time is played. The away goals rule is again applied after extra time, i.e. if there are goals scored during extra time and the aggregate score is still level, the visiting team advances by virtue of more away goals scored. If no goals are scored during extra time, the winners are decided by a penalty shoot-out. In the final, which is played as a single match, if the score is level at the end of normal time, extra time is played, followed by a penalty shoot-out if the score is still level.
The mechanism of the draws for each round is as follows:
- In the draw for the round of 16, the eight group winners are seeded, and the eight group runners-up are unseeded. The seeded teams are drawn against the unseeded teams, with the seeded teams hosting the second leg. Teams from the same group or the same association cannot be drawn against each other.
- In the draws for the quarter-finals and semi-finals, there are no seedings, and teams from the same group or the same association can be drawn against each other. As the draws for the quarter-finals and semi-finals are held together before the quarter-finals are played, the identity of the quarter-final winners is not known at the time of the semi-final draw. A draw is also held to determine which semi-final winner is designated as the "home" team for the final (for administrative purposes as it is played at a neutral venue).
For the quarter-finals and semi-finals, teams from the same city (e.g., Manchester City and Manchester United) do not play at home on the same day or on consecutive days, due to logistics and crowd control. To avoid such scheduling conflict, if the two teams are drawn to play at home for the same leg, the order of legs of the tie involving the team with the lower domestic ranking in the qualifying season – in this case Manchester United for this season – is reversed from the original draw in accordance with the UEFA Club Competitions Committee principles.
Round of 16
The draw for the round of 16 was held on 17 December 2018. The first legs were played on 12, 13, 19 and 20 February, and the second legs were played on 5, 6, 12 and 13 March 2019.
|Team 1||Aggregate Score||Team 2||First Leg||Second Leg|

|Manchester United||3–3 (a)||PSG||0–2||1–3|
|Tottenham Hotspur||4–0||Borussia Dortmund||3–0||1–0|
(a) - Away Goals - PSG- 2, Manchester United- 3.
The draw for the quarter-finals was held on 15 March 2019. The first legs were played on 9 and 10 April, and the second legs were played on 16 and 17 April 2019.
|Team 1||Agg.||Team 2||1st leg||2nd leg|

- ^ Order of legs reversed after original draw, in order to avoid a scheduling conflict with the Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur match in the same city.
