UEFA Champions League return date has been confirmed by Lyon Olympique president Jean-Michel Aulas.

He has confirmed his side’s Champions League last-16 clash with Juventus has been rescheduled for August 7.

The clash will take place behind closed doors, and will be held in Turin, as it was planned to do so before the coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking to RTL, Jean-Michel Aulas said:

“Our match against Juventus has been confirmed for August 7, it will be held in Turin behind closed doors.

“If our legal actions don’t succeed (to restart the 19/20 Ligue 1 season), Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain will be massacred by teams who have had preparation.”

However, it is not certain whether Manchester City’s last-16 match with Real Madrid, which was scheduled to take place on the same day prior to its postponement, will also take place.
