Manchester City’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Real Madrid will be played on August 8 or 9, before an eight-team mini-tournament begins in Lisbon 48 hours later, according to AS.
The report seems to suggest City will be allowed to host their second leg vs Real at home. That’s before the winners would progress to Lisbon for the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final to be held as single-legged games at one of the city’s two major stadiums.
The final would be held on August 23, with no fans permitted for any games.
