All sporting activities came to a standstill since March due to the Coronavirus pandemic. But the domestic leagues have resumed. Bundesliga has finished with Bayern Munich lifting the trophy. LaLiga, Serie A and Premier League are still in play. Ligue 1 is the only exception among top-five European leagues who didn’t resume their league and declared PSG as the winner by a points-per-game method.
And now, it’s finally time for the UEFA Champions League. UEFA had officially declared that the Champions League last 16 second-leg will resume on 7th August with the final being held on 23rd August. They will host a ‘Final Eight’ tournament in Lisbon, Portugal.
Paris Saint-Germain, Atalanta, Atletico Madrid and RB Leipzig have already qualified for the Champions League quarter-finals. The remaining four quarter-finalists will be decided after Manchester City’s home leg against Real Madrid, Chelsea’s trip to Bayern Munich, Juventus’s home game against Olympique Lyonnais and Napoli’s visit to Barcelona.
UEFA confirmed that the remaining last-16 second legs will be hosted by the home teams in their own stadiums. The matches will be played on 7th and 8th August.
