Resuming from the remaining round of 16 matches, both competitions will lead up to a bumper final weekend.

The Europa League final will take place on Friday 21 August in Cologne, while the Champions League’s showpiece match will go ahead two days later in Lisbon.

And fans will be able to watch both matches for FREE, by accessing either the BT Sport app or BT Sport YouTube channel.

The Europa League gets back underway next Wednesday, with round of 16 second legs between Shakhtar Donetsk and Wolfsburg – and FC Copenhagen and Istanbul Basaksehir kicking things off in the teatime kick-off slot.

And Manchester United will also return to action later on that evening, when they host LASK, 5-0 up from March’s first-leg in Austria.

There will be more British involvement a day later, as Rangers travel to Leverkusen trailing 3-1 from the first-leg in Glasgow – while Wolves will hope to get the job done against Olympiacos at Molineux having drawn 1-1 in Greece.

Following the round of 16 phase, the tournament will move to Germany, with matches being hosted in Cologne, Duisberg, Dusseldorf and Gelsenkirchen.

As for the Champions League, things get going on again on Friday 7 August, when Juventus attempt to overhaul a 1-0 deficit to Lyon, and Manchester City look to get the job done against Real Madrid having won 2-1 in Spain.

A day later Bayern Munich will surely get past Chelsea at the Allianz Arena, having stormed to a 3-0 lead in the first-leg, while Barcelona will try and get past Napoli with the score tied at 1-1.

All matches from that point onward in Europe’s premier competition will take place in Lisbon, with the draw having already been made.

Hipster-favourites Atalanta will face cashed-up Paris Saint-Germain to kick off the quarter-finals on Wednesday 12 August.

Then Liverpool’s conquerors Atletico Madrid will face Tottenham-slayers RB Leipzig a day later.

The Friday will see Napoli or Barcelona take on Bayern Munich (or in theory, Chelsea), before Saturday’s battle between Manchester City or Real Madrid and Juventus or Lyon.
