The road to the UEFA Champions League final continues with the semifinals, kicking off with games Tuesday and Wednesday.

It was a wild ride between the conclusion of the quarterfinals and this week's semifinal Leg 1 games. The European Super League came and went in a matter of a couple days last week, as 12 clubs signed up for a breakaway league, only to have the majority of those clubs back out after massive backlash over the controversial project.

Now, it's back to normal soccer activities in continental Europe as the Champions League resumes with Real Madrid hosting Chelsea on Tuesday and Paris Saint-Germain hosting Manchester City on Wednesday. Neither Man City nor PSG has ever won the Champions League, whereas Chelsea has one title to its name and Real Madrid has a record 13 titles.

The second legs of the Champions League semifinals will take place on May 4-5. The Champions League final will be held at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey, on Saturday, May 29 (3 p.m. ET, CBS and Paramount+).
