The four major domestic leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga) receive 4 automatic Group Stage births (for teams who finish in their top four the previous year). Ligue 1 (France) and the Russian Premier League each receive 3 automatic Group Stage entries.
From there, it’s a complicated cascading system involving coefficients, qualifiers, and playoffs. If you want to figure it out, discern the process from the rundown here.
The Group Stage is where most casual (and hardcore) fans start paying attention to the Champions League. This is when 32 qualified teams are slotted into 4 pots. Then they’re randomly drawn to create 8 groups of teams each. The top 2 teams out of each Group advance to the Knockout rounds.
You’ll likely have noticed that teams already qualified for Group play are in pots.
There are some restrictions on Group Stage draws to restrict certain clubs from playing others from within their league.
The top two teams in each Group Stage bracket advance to the Champions League Knockout .
