The 2017–18 UEFA Champions League will be the 63rd season of Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 26th season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs' Cup to the UEFA Champions League. The defending champions are Real Madrid.

Real Madrid successfully defend their title on penalties, with Cristiano Ronaldo taking the final, and winning, penalty, against Bayern Munich. They are the only team since Bayern Munich, who completed the feat in 1973-74, 1974-75 and 1975-76, to win the champions league three times in a row.
