Champions League Quarter-final, Aug 14

By Chris Dinsdale

August 14, 2020 - The UEFA Champions League, Europe’s premier club football competition, enters the quarter-final stage, in which the remaining eight teams compete in a straight “Final Eight” knock-out tournament to decide the 2020 champions. The final takes place at the Estadio da Luz on August 23.

The third quarter-final features perennial tournament heavyweights Bayern Munich and Barcelona, who have won five European Cup titles each. The pair have met 10 times before, with Bayern victorious in six of those matches -- most recently in 2015 -- and Barcelona winning just twice.

Quarter-final ties:
Aug 12: Atalanta v Paris St-Germain
Aug 13: Leipzig v Atletico Madrid
Aug 14: Barcelona v Bayern Munich
Aug 15: Manchester City v Olympique Lyon

The UEFA Champions League is contested by the highest ranked teams of the strongest UEFA national associations. It is the top club competition in European football and one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world. The Champions League final is the most watched annual sporting event worldwide.
