The reports, compiled by UEFA's teams of experienced technical experts, look back at the action and events in the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Women’s Champions League and UEFA Futsal Champions League.

Insights and trends

Crucial insights are given into the tactical and technical performance of the teams that took part in the four competitions. The spotlight also falls on important trends and changes, and teams' performance data is revealed in fascinating detail.

The major findings are underlined in clips, statistics and graphics, which also offer up-to-date education and football development information and can be quickly accessed in a modern digital form.

Why are the reports important?

The objective of each competition report is to enhance the educational concepts provided by UEFA, improve coaches' competence and, consequently, foster the development of players and the game on this continent as a whole.

As well as supplying key information for the coaching community, UEFA's technical reports are also a worthwhile read for dedicated football statisticians and the media – and will certainly also be of interest to football fans and keen observers of the game throughout Europe.
