Cristiano Ronaldo could face former club Real Madrid in the quarter-final provided Juventus beat Olympique Lyonnais in the Champions League round of 16 second-leg.
While Premier League and La Liga seasons finish by July-end, UEFA Champions League will keep Indian football fans entertained with its upcoming quarter-final matches scheduled in Lisbon next month. And you can watch all the matches live on TV as well as live streaming online.
After the COVID-19 outbreak halted the UEFA Champions League mid-March, when the round of 16 ties were ongoing, the European competition is back to the fore with an enticing quarter-final draw that brings together the best of football teams from across the continent.
Four teams - Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid, RB Leipzig and Atalanta – have already reached the last eight and know their next opponent.
Bundesliga side RB Leipzig will take on La Liga’s Atletico Madrid in the quarter-final. While the German team upstaged London’s Tottenham Hotspur in the round of 16, Atletico Madrid eliminated defending champions Liverpool.
Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, who got the better of Germany’s Borussia Dortmund in the last round, will take on Serie A team Atalanta after the Italian side enjoyed a victory over Spanish club Valencia.
In a massive potential quarter-final clash, the winner of Real Madrid vs Manchester City will face Serie A giants Juventus or Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais.
Manchester City will be optimistic about their chances of progressing into the next round after they returned with a one-goal lead from Santiago Bernabeu early February.
Juventus, on the other hand, have work to do in the second leg after the Ligue 1 side stunned the Serie A champions 1-0 in the first leg. However, Cristiano Ronaldo and co. will be the favourites to progress into the quarter-final.
The winner between Lionel Messi’s Barcelona and Napoli, who drew 1-1 at Stadio San Paolo in February, has been pitted against the winner of Bayern Munich versus Chelsea.
The 2019-20 Bundesliga champions have almost sealed their place in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after they upstaged Chelsea 3-0 in the first leg, where Serge Gnabry scored a brace apart from Robert Lewandowski’s goal.
