The promotional fate of West Brom and Leeds United could be decided today – Reports


A decision in Germany could mean the end of West Brom and Leeds United’s promotion dreams, according to reports.

The two clubs occupy the championship auto-promotion spots, with both looking ready to return to the top flight before the coronavirus is suspended.

The EFL and the Premier League remained committed to completing the campaign, and plans are in place for a resumption in June.

However, according to Football Insider, a meeting in Germany could set a precedent for the rest of Europe.

Last week, the French and Dutch football associations canceled their national seasons, the latter canceling all results and canceling promotions.

The Bundesliga plans to resume its season in early May, but a meeting between German Chancellor Angela Merkel could be scheduled to change them.

There was a spike in COVID-19 cases in Germany, which means Merkel could decide to ban sporting events for several months at Thursday’s meeting.

If this happens, it is believed that more pressure will be placed on the British government to follow suit, which could force the FA to cancel the season.

Baggies boss Slaven Bilic recently said he prefers not to play behind closed doors, although he prefers it to “disaster” to completely cancel the season.
