Description of this idea

The Champions League should be a knock out tournament from scratch, just like the old European Cup 1. It will really add some excitement and more chances for the smaller teams.

Inspiration for this idea

Every year most of the big 8 teams (Barca, Real, Inter, Milan, Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea, Bayern) are in the quarter finals and none of these teams are kicked out in the group phase. Money is ruling.
