Juve and Napoli play in Portugal?

French media suggest the second legs of the Champions League Round of 16 Juventus-Lyon and Barcelona-Napoli will be played in Portugal.

The Final Eight tournament in August means that from the quarter-finals onwards, the teams will fight it out in individual one-off matches, all played on neutral turf in Lisbon.

This will help limit travel and potentially also allow some fans in, as Portugal has relatively few COVID-19 cases in comparison with other European countries.

According to RMC Sport and Portuguese paper O Jogo, UEFA have decided that the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 will also be played in Lisbon on August 7-8.

That includes Juventus v Olympique Lyonnais and Barcelona v Napoli, along with Manchester City-Real Madrid.

These fixtures were left midway through when the pandemic broke, Juve losing 1-0 in Lyon and Napoli drawing 1-1 at home.
