New European dates revealed?

The Champions League is set to resume with Juventus and Napoli ties on August 7-8 at their original venues ahead of a Final Eight in Lisbon.

According to Sky Sport Italia, 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.

After that, the Final Eight ties will take place in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon and kick off on August 12 for the next 11 days, with the quarter-finals on August 12-15.

That is followed by the semi-finals on August 18-19 and the Final on August 23.

The broadcaster adds the same format will be applied to the Europa League, with the remaining second legs to be played at their original venues.

The situation is different for Inter and Roma, however, given both sides were unable to get their Last-16 ties against Getafe and Sevilla under way before the coronavirus lockdown.

Therefore, the two Serie A clubs will play their respective ties in Germany, which is also hosting the Europa League’s Final Eight.

Sky notes the Final Eight fixtures will be fulfilled between August 10 and 21 in the German cities of Duisburg, Gelsenkirchen, Frankfurt and Cologne.

Finally, the designated host cities for the next four Champions League Finals will be pushed back a year, starting with Istanbul in 2021.

St Petersburg will now host the 2022 Final, Munich the 2023 Final and Wembley Stadium the 2024 Final.

As for the European Super Cup, Sky concludes it will be played in Budapest on September 24.

The format and dates for the remaining European matches this season will be ratified on Wednesday.
