Next Friday, UEFA will stage the draw for the 2019/20 Champions League quarter-final in Nyon.
After initial conjecture suggested that these games will take place in Portugal, it is also predicted that the governing body will confirm that the final four outstanding rounds of 16 return leg matches will take place on the home grounds of Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Juventus, and FC Barcelona, according to As.
UEFA was anxious that these games were initially staged in Portugal ahead of the quarter-finals and subsequent games in competition with Porto and Guimarães, the cities designated to host the 16 return leg matches Round.
However, in the decision that UEFA will confirm on Friday, pressure from City and Barça to play at their respective grounds has ultimately been instrumental.
On August 7th and 8th, the outstanding games to be played in the 16 round will take place with the quarter-finals starting on August 12th with one game a day in Lisbon at Sporting CP and Benfica’s homes.
With a final on August 23, the Estadio da Luz will host both semi-finals (August 18/19).
