The outlet reports that UEFA intend to schedule the 2nd leg clash between Juventus and Lyon of their Round of 16 encounter for 8th August. OL will head into that match with a 1-0 lead which they secured during the home leg.

UEFA met today over videoconference with the relevant club presidents to reaffirm their desire to complete this season’s edition of the Champions’ League.
