UEFA Championship to start August

Last Updated on

UEFA has announced that the Champions League quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will be held in Lisbon between August 12-23.

The competition is set to resume following an extended break due to the coronavirus pandemic with four of the eight Round of 16 second-leg ties still left to be played.

The remaining second-leg matches will be played on August 7-8, with a decision still to be made on whether they will take place at the home team’s stadiums or in Portugal.

Paris Saint-Germain, Atalanta, Atletico Madrid and RB Leipzig have already claimed their place in the quarter-final round, which will take place between August 12-15 at the Estadio da Luz and the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

The semi-final round will be held on August 18-19 with the Estadio da Luz hosting the final on August 23.

With the condensed schedule, all remaining rounds will be played as single-leg ties with extra time and penalty kicks to decide winners.

The draw for the quarter-final round will be held at UEFA headquarters on July 10 with the federation laying out the match schedule at that time.
