Champions League Returns for August Completion

champions league logo

The months of June and July have felt like a dream for football fans. Games have taken place in the top European leagues on an almost daily basis, with kick offs spread out to ensure as many games as possible can be seen.

No fans have been able to attend, a fact of life that many have had to get used to, but in terms of TV watching, the service on offer for football fans has never been as good as the one we have seen recently.

Just when you were catching your breath at the end of the season, the month of August came and that means Champions League football for the best part of a month.

Champions League Restart Details

When play came to a halt in March, the last-16 stage was part way completed and the first part of the restart focuses on completing that. These games will be played at the home grounds of those who were supposed to be hosting, as they have already played a leg away from home.

August 7
Juventus vs Lyon (agg 0-1)
Manchester City vs Real Madrid (agg 2-1)

August 8
Bayern Munich vs Chelsea (agg 3-0)
Barcelona vs Napoli (agg 1-1)

Quarter Finals, Semi Finals & Final

After the four games above have been completed and we know the final eight of the competition, all teams will head to Lisbon, Portugal.

Games here will be played on neutral venues, behind closed doors and all games will be one-off games rather than two legs as we normally see in the quarter and semi finals.

The draw has already been made for these rounds, so every team knows their path to the final.

Quarter Finals
Aug 12 – Atalanta vs PSG
Aug 13 – Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid
Aug 14 – Barcelona or Napoli vs Bayern or Chelsea
Aug 15 – Manchester City or Real Madrid vs Juventus or Lyon

Semi Finals
Aug 18 – winner of QF2 vs winner of QF1
Aug 19 – winner of QF4 vs winner of QF3

Aug 23 – winner of SF1 vs winner of SF2

All games are to be played across two stadiums in Lisbon, the homes of Sporting Lisbon and Benfica.

Who are the Favourites?

New bookmaker Betiton have prices available for who will lift the Champions League trophy at the end of August and they have installed joint favourites.

Manchester City and Bayern Munich are both priced up at 10/3 to win the tournament. This is really interesting because they are two of the teams who still have to play last-16 games and they will also meet in the semi finals should they both make it that far.

Further down the list of teams, you will see some of the bigger names in Europe such as Barcelona who are 8/1 with Betiton and Juventus who are 14/1 with the same bookmaker.

These two potentially face the two joint-favourites in the quarter-final round, but a surprise win would give them a huge chance of winning the tournament.
