UEFA Champions League semifinals dates, times, TV channels & streaming

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

Two Spanish clubs meet two English clubs as the competition’s two most decorated nations battle for another crown.

The Premier League sends its two top clubs, Man City and Liverpool, into the semi-finals in a bid for glory on the European stage. La Liga, on the other hand, has leaders Real Madrid and seventh-placed Villarreal, who are in the semi-finals of the Champions League for the second time in their history.

Villarreal’s excitement against Bayern Munich was one of the most amazing results of the season, with Robert Lewandowski and Bayern scoring just a single goal in the 180 minutes of the quarter-finals and Samuel Chukwueze’s 88th-minute goal put the Spanish side 2-1 ahead on aggregate .

Man City and Real Madrid meet in a repeat of the 2019-20 Champions League quarter-finals as Zinedine Zidane’s side are eliminated from the competition with City’s two 2-1 wins.

The other semi-final, meanwhile, marks the first Champions League clash between Liverpool and Villarreal. The two have only met twice in history, both coming together in the two legs of their Europa League semi-final match in 2016.
