CBS says in the Champions League round of 16, when there are two sets of simultaneous matches, CBS Sports Network could switch to a more competitive game should events necessitate it. All three matches on CBS Sports Network will have a 90-minute pregame show.
Studio talent will feature host Kate Abdo, Roberto Martinez, Jamie Carragher, Ruud Gullit, Alex Scott, Peter Schmeichel and Micah Richards, while the match commentators will be Clive Tyldesley and Peter Drury.
CBS was not due to start airing UEFA club competitions until the summer of 2021, but Turner opted out of its rights deal early, and CBS added another season and change to its arrangement earlier this month. The short runway and already-set broadcast schedule resulted in limited available TV windows.
