New Format for 2020 Champions League Tournament

There’s a new format for this year’s Champions League because of COVID-19.

All of the remaining matches will be played at two stadiums in Lisbon, Portugal. All of the ties are one leg only as well, meaning we could potentially see some big upsets this week.

There will be no home field advantage and no fans in the stands.

Any one of these teams could heat up and win three consecutive matches this month. That’s all it’ll take to win the Champions League this season and it should make these final rounds exciting.
