The draw has thrown up several interesting fixtures. German champions Bayern Munich, who are up 3-0 against Chelsea, will face either Barcelona or Napoli (first leg 1-1). RB Leipzig will face Atlético Madrid, who have eliminated title holders Liverpool.
“Everything is possible in one game,” Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche said to German television station Sky on Friday. “We can’t change the draw, Atlético know this tournament well and have an experienced coach, but we are excited for the game and the difficult opponent.”
Leipzig are not the only team to face a difficult opponent. Manchester City still have to play their return leg against Real Madrid but won 2-1 on the road. After facing Los Blancos at home at the Etihad, City, should they advance, will face either Juventus or Olympique Lyon. Lyon have won the first leg at home 1-0.
Starting from the quarterfinals all games will take place in single-elimination playoffs in Lisbon. The quarterfinals will take place from August 12 to 15, the semifinals from August 18 to 19 and the final will take place on August 23.
