The UEFA, or the Union of European Football Associations, is kind of like the NFL of soccer. Next to the World Cup games, this is the biggest soccer tournament out there. This year is the 65th season of this soccer stand-off, and, following a round-robin-style series of multiple rounds, the teams have now been narrowed down to the best two for this year.

On Sunday, August 23, the UEFA Champions League Final game will be played in Lisbon in an empty stadium, due to COVID-19. While the UEFA Champions League winners most frequently hail from Spain, England, or Italy, things are a little different this year. The final showdown is between Paris St. Germain (their first time in the finals) and Bayern Munich.
