The tie of the round in the Champions League quarter-finals takes place tonight, with Barcelona against Bayern Munich.

Barca had to see off Napoli in the round of 16 last week, while they slipped up domestically and finished second in LaLiga after lockdown.

Bayern finished off the job against Chelsea to reach the last eight here, while they also went on to win the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal in July.

It could be all about which attack is most lethal here, with Lionel Messi at one end and Robert Lewandowski at the other.

Here’s all you need to know about the game.

When is it and what time is kick-off?

The match will begin at 8pm BST on Friday 14 August at Estadio do Sport in Lisbon.
