UEFA Champions League bracket, schedule: Where things stand ahead of Friday’s restart


After a 148-day layoff, UEFA Champions League action resumes on Friday with a pair of scintillating matchups: Manchester City vs. Real Madrid on CBS All Access and CBS Sports Network and Juventus vs. Lyon on CBS All Access. On Saturday, we have Lionel Messi and his Barcelona side hosting a Napoli side looking to pull off a shocker at Camp Nou while a Christian Pulisic-less Chelsea side look to climb out of a 3-0 deficit against Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich. Every Champions League match the rest of the way kicks off at 3 p.m. ET and can be streamed directly on CBS All Access. Matchday coverage begins as early as 8 a.m. ET on CBS Sports HQ.

Once those four round of 16 matchups are decided, the scene shifts to Lisbon, Portugal, for the start of the quarterfinals. It will be a frantic sprint to finish line as the tournament is set to wrap up on Aug. 23, marking the first time the final will take place on a Sunday.
