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.

Lecce gifted victory to Juventus

The result shows a 4-0 Juventus victory, but Elio Salerno points out Lecce had the measure of the Bianconeri until going down to 10 men.

Juventus ran out comfortable 4-0 winners on Friday night when dispatching relegation-threatened Lecce, but only after the Salentini gave their hosts a helping hand.
