UEFA Announces Quarter Final Fixtures for the 2019/2020 Champions League

The Quarter final fixtures for 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League were drawn on Friday, after much delays as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Quarter final matches will take place from August 12-15th in Lisbon, Portugal.

Manchester City will play Juventus or Lyon if they knock out Real Madrid in their delayed last-16 second-leg tie when the competition resumes in early August.

Pep Guardiola’s side, who will learn the fate of their appeal against a two-year ban from UEFA club competitions for Financial Fair Play rule breaches on Monday, hold a 2-1 lead from the first leg in Madrid back in February.

Chelsea, the only other remaining Premier League club left in Europe’s top-tier competition, trail Bayern Munich 3-0 ahead of the return leg in Germany, with the winners drawn to meet either Napoli or Barcelona.

RB Leipzig, who defeated Tottenham to reach the last eight of the Champions League for the first time, will meet Atletico Madrid while Atalanta, playing in the Champions League for the first time, have drawn French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

On Thursday, UEFA announced the remaining last-16 second-leg ties in the Champions League, halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be played at home grounds behind closed doors on August 7-8.

All matches in the mini-tournament of knockout games, which will be single-leg fixtures, are set to take place in Lisbon, Portugal at either Sporting’s Estadio Jose Alvalade or Benfica’s Estadio da Luz between August 12-23.
