Champions League knockout games are set to be played in an 12-day condensed tournament in Lisbon in August.The Portuguese capital will host the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final between August 12-23.

All ties will be played as single legs across two different stadiums in Lisbon.

How the four outstanding last-16 matches should be completed has yet to be decided. Manchester City were due to play a second-leg match against Real Madrid on March 17 at the Etihad Stadium, leading 2-1 from the first leg in Spain. Chelsea are 3-0 down from the home first leg of their tie against Bayern Munich.

Original Champions League final hosts Istanbul are expected to be compensated with the right to stage a future final.
As things stand all the matches would be behind closed doors, but if the Portuguese government were to alter its guidance in time for ticketing to be organised then there is the possibility of some supporters being able to attend.
A decision has yet to be made on the remaining Europa League games this season but it’s likely to follow a similar format with the likely destination a city in Germany – possibly Frankfurt or Dusseldorf.
