The 2020-21 Champions League final will take place on Friday May 29, 2021. The match is expected to kick off at 8pm BST (3pm ET).

It will be played at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey. Home of the Turkey national team, the Ataturk Olympic Stadium had been due to host the 2019-20 final.

The venue previously hosted the Champions League final in 2005, when Liverpool staged 'The Miracle of Istanbul' to come from behind and defeat favourites AC Milan.

Group tables, fixtures and results will appear here.

The draw for the group stage was held on October 1, 2020.

A number of intriguing match-ups have been thrown together in the group stage, with Lionel Messi locking horns with his arch rival Cristiano Ronaldo in Group G, as Barcelona and Juventus collide.

Manchester United will go head-to-head with Paris Saint-Germain again and Neymar et al will no doubt be keen for revenge having been dumped out of last season's competition in the last 16 by the Red Devils.

Liverpool, meanwhile, face into games against Ajax in Group Dand the reigning champions Bayernwill have to overcome Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid, who now have the potency of Luis Suarez in attack.
