UEFA is issuing an official Player of the Match award, presented by PlayStation, after every 2022/23 UEFA Champions League game to recognise the top performers in Europe's premier club competition.

The UEFA Technical Observer panel at each fixture decides who deserves to be the Player of the Match, with an official trophy handed to the successful candidate after full time. Bolded teams (below) are those of the selected player.
