The Europa League will follow a similar format, with the quarter-finals onwards being played in Germany.

UEFA’s Executive Committee ratified the proposals on Wednesday.

Four Champions League last-16 ties remain outstanding, including those involving Chelsea and Manchester City.

Those games have been penciled in for August 7-8.

From that point onwards, the remaining eight sides will decamp to the Portuguese capital for single-leg quarter-finals.

Istanbul won't be deprived of a first Champions League final since 2005; the Ataturk will resume hosting duties in 2021.

St. Petersburg will host in 2022, Munich in 2023 and Wembley in 2o24.

The Europa League will follow a similar format but spread across the cities of Cologne, Gelsenkirchen, Frankfurt and Duisburg.

The ties involving Inter-Getafe and Roma-Sevilla will be played exclusively in Germany. The six outstanding last-16 second legs will all take place in their original host cities.

Cologne will host this season's final on August 21.

The quarter-final draws will take place in Nyon in mid-July.
