Stranger things have happened, though I think assuming they restart it at some point in the summer Real Madrid would be the favorite in my opinion. They seem to be fully fit for the first time all year, Bayern would've had about a month off after finishing the season in June, and PSG would've been off for ages.

So 1 leg finals in Lisbon beginning August 12, ending the 23rd. For the 4 matches where the second leg hadn't been played yet (Manchester City vs. Real Madrid, Napoli vs. Barcelona, Lyon vs. Juventus & Bayern Munich/Chelsea) those second leg matches will take place the 7th & 8th; though not sure that will be in home stadiums or in Lisbon as well.

Europa League will also conclude at 4 sites in Germany around the same time. Not sure what effect this is going to have on qualifying for the 2020-21 champions league season which usually starts around the end of the this month.

I think Atletico Madrid will win it seeing how they came back against the prior champs Liverpool

They should just do away with the domestic season, and just play the CL now. Domestic is boring.

Then they can have the Euro. They are all plenty rested.

How is domestic boring ? You can have a CL or EL without domestic leagues. Can you imagine winning next seasons CL and having the * that your season wasnt completed and you were just given a CL spot on "merit". I want the leagues knocked out, couldnt care less about the CL or EL at this stage.

Domestic is boring because there is no parity except with England. Rest of the four is just one or two teams competitive. Its like watching College Football conference play.

How is England exciting?? That race was over in October practically. Juve is only a couple points up on Lazio, Dortmund got Bayern down to a couple of points and RB Leipzig lead at the winter break before both teams shot themselves in the foot repeatedly the second half of the season to fall off the pace, but I'll give you France because PSG seemed to have been cruising for a while, and I doubt Lyon, Marseille, Lille, Rennes would've made much if any challenge would that league had resumed. Real Madrid & Barca are going back and forth and Atleti is making a charge up the table.

If by boring you mean the same teams, but what's different than any other year??

Id have to disagree, especially with the College Football quote. Im just kidding I hate american football so I cant really comment except say there is a LOT more going on in all the leagues than just the champion.
