Champions League Might Not Start Now, But Here Are Some Classic UCL Matches To Enjoy
Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid

One of the most hard-fought finals in recent history (up until 90 minutes), ended ultimately in a one-sided result. The last minute drama, the equaliser of Ramos during stoppage time, Real's rampage during extra time and Ronaldo's first UCL trophy with Madrid, experience all that in this match.
AC Milan vs Liverpool
Another legendary final which has gone down in history books as one of the greatest ever, if we've missed this, our love for football will remain incomplete. A tale of heroic feats, an unimaginable comeback and a fairytale night in Istanbul are what comprised this epic this final between Liverpool and AC Milan, where Liverpool came back from a 3-0 deficit at half time and ultimately clinched the title!
Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City
Coming into the 2nd leg with a 1-0 home win, this away match for Tottenham was always going to be a mountain to climb. Manchester City, at home, were supposed to be favourites. But what followed was a flood of goals and the most unexpected result. This quarter-final second leg ended with a 4-3 scoreline in favour of City, but Tottenham qualified on the away goals rule.
Barcelona vs Manchester United

Paris Saint Germain vs Barcelona
Words are insufficient to describe the magnitude of this match. The greatest comeback in UCL history, this round-of-16 second leg tie was no less than a scintillating edge-of-the-seat thriller. Barcelona had the unachievable task of overcoming a 4-0 deficit from the first leg. But Camp Nou watched the impossible unfold, as Barcelona won the match miraculously by 6-1, taking the aggregate score to 6-5, and thus qualifying for the next round. Who said fairy tales don't exist?
