UEFA Champions League bracket, schedule: Tyler Adams wins it for RB Leipzig; PSG up next in semis

After a 148-day layoff, the UEFA Champions League resumed play last week with four terrific matchups to round out the quarterfinal field. The quarterfinals kicked off Wednesday, and now only seven teams are left in the battle for the Champions League crown. That number will shrink to six after Atletico Madrid face RB Leipzig on Thursday. Every match the rest of the way kicks off at 3 p.m. ET and can be directly streamed on CBS All Access. 

Matchday coverage begins as early as 8 a.m. ET on CBS Sports HQ.

The scene has shifted to Lisbon, Portugal, for the quarterfinals. Paris Saint-Germain squeaked past Atalanta with two late goals in the dying moments. On Thursday, we were treated to an American surprise with Tyler Adams, who spoke to CBS before the match, opening up his account for RB Leipzig and lifting his team past Atletico Madrid late in the quarters. It will be a frantic sprint to finish line as the tournament is set to wrap up on Aug. 23, marking the first time the final will take place on a Sunday.
