Champions League suspended: as is the case with a great many football matches and sport in general, the Champions League has cancelled upcoming fixture dues to the global coronavirus pandemic. UEFA has said that it will communicate further information on Tuesday March 17, but until then we don't know when the next round of the competition will take place. Our original guide follows.
It's the business end of the UEFA Champions League 2019-20 so it's time to sit back and enjoy the goals as Europe's best football teams compete for soccer supremacy on the continent. We're here to tell you how to watch every single game of the knock-out stages by following our Champions League live stream guide, including those now being played behind closed doors due to the continuing spread of the deadly coronavirus.
Surprise package Atalanta have already prevailed, defeating Valencia, while RB Leipzig are also in the Champions League quarter-finals are ruthlessly putting Tottenham to the sword.
Champions League 2019/20 cheat sheet
The 2019/20 Champions League represents the 65th year of Europe's most prestigious club football tournament. Qualifying began all the way back in June 2019 and the competition proper kicked off in September last year. Every last pass, tackle and goal since then has been building up to a final at the iconic Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Instanbul, set to be held on May 30, 2020.
The remaining round of 16's second leg fixtures are bigger than ever with the likes of Real Madrid vs Man City, Atlético Madrid vs Liverpool, Chelsea vs Bayern Munich and more taking place this March. Liverpool are the reigning champions, but this year's competition is impossible to call and the seemingly invincible Merseyside team have a 1-0 deficit to overcome when they take on Atlético Madrid at Anfield.
Last year, June's final saw Liverpool lift the majestic Champions League trophy, with Mo Salah and unlikely hero Divock Origi on target to down fellow Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur and become the third most garlanded side in the history of the competition.
Also still in with a shot at glory this year are big-spending spending PSG, with their ridiculous strike-force featuring Kylian Mbappé, Edinson Cavan and self-appointed Brazilian stud Neymar. Yet they also face an uphill struggle, as Borussia Dortmund boast arguably the world's most promising striker in 19-year-old Erling Braut Haaland.
The Norwegian international netted a scintillating double last week to give Borussia a 2-1 lead heading into the decisive leg of their encounter - a feat he'll no doubt hope to repeat in the return fixture. England fans can only watch in awe and think what might have been, given the goal-machine was born in Leeds. There's plenty more drama still to come, though, so don't miss a minute of the action and follow our guide to learn how to watch a Champions League live stream wherever you are.

More Champions League 2020 news and predictions
There's truly something for everyone this year, as eternally classy outfits such as Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool face fierce competition from exciting young clubs like RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund. There's also a Napoli side that hasn't looked this promising since the days when Diego Maradona graced the Stadio San Paolo - and another surprising Serie A success story in Lombardy's Atalanta, who are now firm favourites to progress to the quarter-finals. As are Germany's Bayern Munich, who take a commanding 3-0 lead into their tie against Chelsea.
Nostalgic types might think that this is the year that Juventus break their 20-odd year duck, with star player Cristiano Ronaldo in a rich vein of goal scoring form. Pep Guardiola's Manchester City will be desperate to win the title, too, as they're staring down the barrel of a two-year ban from the competition thanks to a recent UEFA ruling - one their moneyed owners will no doubt be hoping that...money can help overturn? And who can ever rule out Barcelona and potential GOAT Lionel Messi - or equally storied Spanish side Real Madrid with generational talents like Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale just some of the attacking options at their disposal.
Again, this term's UEFA Champions League is a tough one to predict ahead of the final, which takes place on Saturday, May 30 at Istanbul's Atatürk Olympic Stadium. All will be revealed soon, though, so make sure you've got a viewing option good-to-go and can watch the Champions League wherever you are.
