Champions League knockout games will be played in a 12-day condensed tournament in Lisbon in from August 12-23.

Paris Saint-Germain, Atalanta, Atletico Madrid and RB Leipzig have already guaranteed their respective places in the last eight. Manchester City – 2-1 up against Real Madrid from the first leg – and Chelsea, who face a tough task after a 3-0 first-leg defeat to Bayern Munich, are hoping to join them. Juventus will need to overturn a 1-0 deficit against Lyon if they are to progress and Barcelona are level 1-1 with Napoli with the second legs yet to be played.

UEFA is yet to determine whether those matches will take place at the respective host stadiums, or in Portugal, but say a decision will be made before July 10, when the draws for the quarter-finals and semi-finals will take place in Nyon.
