Dates, venues finalized for remaining Champions League last-16 matches

UEFA announced Thursday details for the four remaining fixtures of the Champions League last-16 stage that were postponed in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The European football governing body confirmed that the four second-leg tilts will be hosted at the respective club's home venue on Aug. 7 and 8 "where travelling is possible without restrictions for the visiting clubs."

The remaining four last-16 fixtures and aggregate scores are as follows (home team for second leg listed first):

  • Juventus vs Lyon (0-1)
  • Manchester City vs Real Madrid (2-1)
  • Bayern vs Chelsea (3-0)
  • Barcelona vs Napoli (1-1)

Atalanta, RB Leipzig, Atletico Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain all secured spots in the last 8 prior to the suspension of play.

The European football governing body also announced that the quarterfinal and semifinal draws will take place Friday.

UEFA confirmed in June that the quarterfinal stage and onward of Europe's premiere football competition would be played from Aug. 12-23 in Lisbon, Portugal. Previously contested over two legs, the quarterfinal and semifinal phases will now be single-elimination matches.

UEFA also announced that all matches will take place behind closed doors until further notice. The same will apply to the Europa League and women's Champions League competitions.

Istanbul, which was scheduled to host this year's final, will instead stage the showpiece contest in 2021.
