CL & EL set for Final Eight format

The Champions League is set to adopt a Final Eight format after the Last-16 stage, with all ties to be played in Lisbon.

Multiple sources including Sky Sport Italia and Bild write Lisbon will not only host the Final but also all the remaining ties from the quarter-finals onwards.

Therefore, the second legs of Juventus-Olympique Lyonnais (0-1 agg.) and Barcelona-Napoli (1-1 agg.) will continue to be played in Turin and Catalonia respectively.

Atalanta are already certain of their place in the Final Eight, while Roma and Inter both still have to play their Last-16 ties in the Europa League, against Sevilla and Getafe.

The same format will be applied to the Europa League (in Germany) and the Women’s Champions League (in Spain).

Finally, reports claim the 2020-21 European Super Cup will be held in the Hungarian capital of Budapest.
