European football is back! European football is back! Here are Champions League fixtures for this week
The UEFA Champions League and Europa League resume this week in order to clear up the last remaining business in a troubled season.
The two competitions were abandoned in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe. UEFA decided to set up two mini-tournaments bringing all teams together in one place from the quarter-finals onwards, with all ties being decided in one-off matches behind closed doors.
The Champions League will move to Lisbon for the ‘Final Eight’ starting on August 12 and ending with the final at Benfica’s Estadio da Luz on August 23.
The Europa League, meanwhile, will be played to a conclusion at a series of venues in western Germany, with the last eight beginning on August 10 and the final in Cologne on August 21.
Here are the matches to look out for this week:
