Santi Retortillo, Atlético reporter: Atlético have served the league once again, ensuring their presence in the next edition of the UEFA Champions League, but now they want to finish the season by aspiring to the continental title. In everyone’s memory are the three goals at Anfield to eliminate the reigning champion. Now it’s time to face Leipzig, which has been one of the sensations in Europe this season, but Atlético has the experience of being a regular in the #UCL. Those of Diego Simeone seek full joy in this summer of 2020.

Friday, August 14: Barcelona – Bayern

BAVARIA (GER)

Jordan Maciel, Bayern reporter: Bayern, double champion in Germany, is intractable in 2020 and maintains its full of victories in the current Champions League and can be rightly considered the favorite for the title. However, the Flick team should not be reached by euphoria because anything can happen. A European giant like Barcelona is waiting in Lisbon, so step by step.

BARCELONA (ESP)

Ranking UEFA: 3
Season: 8P 5V 3E 0D 13GF 6GC
Round of 16: 4-2 against Naples

Last season: semifinals

Juan Díaz, Barcelona reporter: Barcelona comes to the Lisbon Final Phase in full swing after having left Napoli on the road and remaining undefeated in the competition. Quique Setién’s men, led by Lionel Messi from the pitch, want to re-taste the taste of victory at the top club event in Europe after not doing so since 2015, although, yes, the road will be very complicated and It will require the utmost excellence since the next rival is Bayern Munich, a young and daring team that also dreams of raising the cup again.

Saturday 15 August: Manchester City – Lyon

MANCHESTER CITY (ENG)

Ranking UEFA: 6
Temperature: 8P 6V 2E 0D 20GF 6GC
Round of 16: 4-2 against Real Madrid
Top scorer: Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling (6)
Last season: quarter-finals
Best performance in the European Cup: semi-finals (2015/16)

Simon Hart, Man. City reporter: City have taken their time to look like a tough opponent, but will travel to Lisbon undefeated and success is one step away. This is a team with one of the best passers in the world (Kevin De Bruyne) and with two forwards (Sterling and Gabriel Jesus) in great shape (in addition to the possible return of Sergio Agüero). Their style under Pep Guardiola has never been questioned, but now, after failing in the past, they have never been better placed to show their essence. City has only one defeat in their last 17 matches in this competition.

LYON (FRA)


Juventus - Lyon 2-1

Juventus – Lyon 2-1

Last season: round of 16
Best performance in the European Cup: semi-finals (2009/10)

David Crossan, Lyon reporter: Lyon had some luck in the group stage, but they beat Juventus, the Italian champions, to reach the quarter-finals. With Depay in good shape and in a state of grace heading into goal (he has scored in all the Champions League games he has played this season), and with a 3-5-2 adapted for Europe, the French club could give another surprise .
