UEFA Planning To Hold Champions League and Europa League Finals in August

 

UEFA is reportedly working on plans to play the 2020 Champions League final on August 29.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put football and the sporting world on hold, leaving domestic championships, and large-scale competitions such as the Champions League and Europa League in a state of limbo.

UEFA, is due to meet on April 23 for further discussions on how to complete the 2019/20 campaign.

Various reports in the media claim thats the Champions League final at Istanbul’s Ataturk Stadium would happen on the final Saturday of August, while the Europa League final in Gdansk would happen three days earlier (August 26).

 

 

Meanwhile, there have also been discussions about provisionally playing the Champions League quarter-finals from July 28/29 and the latter stages of the competition would thus be played in August.

However, the remaining ties could be played as one-off matches after the end of the domestic seasons, which could see it potentially condensing into a mini-tournament.

Four of the eight Champions League quarter-finalists are already known, however, last-16 ties including Real Madrid vs Manchester City and Chelsea vs Bayern Munich are yet to be concluded.

The situation is more complex in the Europa League because all eight last-16 second-leg ties are still to be played, with two matches, involving Spanish and Italian teams, yet to play the first legs.

All answers are expected to be answered this week!
