After the Bundesliga is before the rest of the season in the Champions League: at noon the tournament for Europe’s football crown will be drawn – to be seen live on free TV on Sky Sport News HD.
While Borussia Dortmund said goodbye to the competition in a ghost game against Paris before the Corona break, Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig are still there. The latter are already qualified for the tournament format taking place in Lisbon, the quarter-finals of which will be drawn immediately. Bayern still have to qualify in a round of 16 second leg against Chelsea. With a 3-0 first leg win in England in their luggage, this should only be a matter of form for the Munich team.
However, UEFA does not prevent this confusion from determining what will happen next. The draw will start at 12 noon. The broadcast on Sky Sport News HD starts in these minutes.
In the Europa League there are still round of 16 second leg matches for all German representatives. These will take place on August 6th, before a tournament in Cologne and the surrounding area will also take place in the second class of the international competitions from the quarterfinals. The draw for this will take place from 1 p.m.
The broadcasting rights are indeed the old, previously valid ones. Say: Champions League with DAZN and Sky, Europa League with DAZN and RTL. However, due to the tournament formats, there are only half as many games. So it will be interesting to see how the TV partners deal with the new situation.
So far, nothing is known about this.
