The 2019-2020 Champions League, suspended since March because of the coronavirus pandemic, will be completed in a ‘final eight’ format in Lisbon in August.
Europe’s top club competition will be decided by a series of one off matches from the quarter final stage beginning in the Portuguese capital on August 12, with the final on August 23.

The four remaining Round of 16 games will be completed this week, before moving onto the Quarter Finals.

Please see following my predictions for the Champions League :-

Friday 7th August

Round of 16 – Second Legs
Juventus 3 v 1 Lyon ( Score from first leg, one nil to Lyon)
Manchester City 2 v 1 Real Madrid ( score from first leg, two – one to Manchester City)

Saturday 8th August

Round of 16 – Second Legs
Barcelona 3 v 0 Napoli (score from first leg, drawing one – one)
Mauricio Pochettino could make a dramatic return to management at Barcelona. If they do not win the Champions League
they will more than likely replace current manager Quique Setien, with Pochettino this summer.
Bayern Munich 3 v 1 Chelsea (score from first leg, three – nil to Bayern Munich)

Wednesday 12th August

Atalanta 1 v 3 Paris Saint Germain
Thursday 13th August
RB Leipzig 1 v 3 Atlético Madrid

Have a good week

Stay safe
