The first fixture of the UEFA Champions League is set to take place between Paris Saint-Germain and Atalanta on Wednesday at Estádio Sport Lisboa e Benfica in Lisbon, Portugal.
All the remaining fixtures of the Champions League will be played via a straight knockout at a single location due to the coronavirus pandemic that forced a five-month hiatus on all sporting events across the world.
Ligue 1 winners PSG are favourites to advance to the semi-finals with the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe featuring in the squad. The Serie A side Atalanta, meanwhile, had a slow start in the group stages having lost three of their matches.
This will be the first competitive fixture between Atalanta and PSG. Atalanta's only previous encounter with a French club in European competition was against Lyon in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League group stages.
PSG have never won a single game against Italian teams in Champions League (D4 L2). They have also failed to keep a clean sheet in all the six matches.
PSG are in the quarter-finals for the first time since 2015/16 season. They have not reached the semi-finals since 1994/95.
