Champions League final date and venue as Chelsea edge closer after knocking out Porto


Chelsea have progressed into the semi-finals of the Champions League after knocking out Porto over two legs.

The Blues will now face the winner of Liverpool and Real Madrid – who lock horns in the quarter-final second-leg tomorrow (Wednesday) night.

Los Blancos boast a 3-1 advantage over the Reds after a convincing first-leg victory at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano last week.

If Madrid manage to fend off Liverpool, then they will clash with Thomas Tuchel’s side later this month for a place in the Champions League final.

It comes after Chelsea booked their spot in the last four against Portuguese giants Porto tonight.

Following a 2-0 win against Porto last week, Tuchel’s men were beaten 1-0 on the night thanks to a 93rd-minute overhead kick from Mehdi Taremi, but did enough to seal a spot in the last four – and one step closer to the final.

So, when and where is the 2020/21 Champions League final, as Chelsea look to clinch their second-ever triumph in the prestigious competition? Find out below.

Where is the 2020/21 Champions League final?

The final is set to take place at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Turkish city Istanbul.

The ground was the venue where Liverpool produced their historic 3-0 comeback against AC Milan back in 2005 to secure their fifth Champions League trophy.

The Ataturk was set to host the 2019/20 final, but restrictions put in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic meant the conclusion of the tournament was played in Portugal instead.

When is the 2020/21 Champions League final?

The final is set to take place on Saturday, May 19 – with the game scheduled to kick off at 7pm BST.

Madrid and Liverpool will both be hoping to reach that stage, while PSG booked their spot in the last four by knocking out Bayern Munich tonight, with Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund also competing as they look to make it to Turkey.
