The 2019-20 UEFA Champions League returns to action in August after a five-month hiatus, with the last four Round of 16 matches to be played in their originally scheduled venues before the remaining eight teams all head to Lisbon for a soccer bonanza.
The quarterfinals, semifinals and final will all be played in the Portuguese city over the course of 11 days, making for a frenzied finish to the most prestigious club competition in the world.

But bureaucratic in-fighting aside, the 2019/20 Champions League season looks set for a scintillating finish, with mouthwatering ties like Bayern vs Chelsea and Man City vs Real Madrid first up this July.

WHERE IS THE 2020 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE?
After the Round of 16 is completed, the remainder of the competition will take place in Lisbon, Portugal. Two venues will share hosting duties from the quarterfinals onward, as the Estadio da Luz and Estadio Jose Alvalade will take turns providing the setting as the biggest teams in Europe battle for soccer supremacy.
Both venues are well-known to fans. The biggest stadium in Portugal, the 64,000-capacity Estadio da Luz is home to Primeira Liga giant Benfica, and it has hosted several high profile matches — including the Euro 2004 final and the 2014 Champions League final. The Estadio da Luz will host this year’s deciding match.
Across town, Sporting Lisbon’s home ground — the Estadio Jose Alvalade — is a cathedral of the game in its own right. The 50,000-seat stadium also hosted several Euro 2004 fixtures as well as the 2005 UEFA Cup final.
