UEFA Champions League semi-final dates, times, TV channels and live broadcasts

The 2021-22 Champions League is relegated to the last four teams, and the competition is fierce.

Two Spanish teams meet two English teams as the two most decorated teams in the tournament compete for another title.

The Premier League sends the two best teams, Manchester City and Liverpool, to the semi-finals in search of glory in the European stage. Meanwhile, leaders Real Madrid, along with seventh-placed Villarreal, are participating in the Champions League semi-finals for the second time in history.

Villarreal’s surprise over Bayern Munich was one of the most amazing results of the season, as Robert Lewandowski and Bayern stuck to only one goal during 180 minutes of the quarter-final, and Samuel Chukwueze’s goal in the 88th minute passed the Spanish team on the lookout.

Man City and Real Madrid meet in the rematch of the 2019-20 Champions League quarter-final, where a 2-1 victory over City knocked Zinedine Zidane’s side out of the competition.

Meanwhile, the second semi-final marks the first Champions League meeting between Liverpool and Villarreal. The two have met only twice before in history, and both came in 2016 via the second leg of their Europa League semi-final match.
