Restart of the champions League: Lisbon will host the final phases condensed 12-day | Football News


The champions League is scheduled to conclude in August

The matches of direct elimination from the champions League should play in a tournament condensed to 12 days in Lisbon in August.

The Portuguese capital will host the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals from 12 to 23 August.

All games will be played in single matches in two different stadiums in Lisbon’s Estadio da Luz and the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

The UEFA executive Committee is expected to approve the new mini-tournament during a meeting Wednesday.

  • The quarter-finals of the champions League: August 12-15
  • The semi-finals of the champions League: 18/19 August
  • The final of the champions League: August 23,

The way the last four matches of the last 16 matches should be completed has not yet been determined. Manchester City had to play a return match against Real Madrid on the 17th of march at the Etihad stadium, leading 2-1 from the first leg in Spain. Chelsea has a record of 3-0 after the first leg at home against Bayern Munich.

Istanbul, host of the final of the champions League, should be compensated for the right to host a future final.

In the current state of things, all the matches would be held behind closed doors, but if the Portuguese government amended its guidance in time to organize the box office, it is possible that some fans can attend.

A decision has not been taken yet on the other matches of the Europa League this season, but it is likely that it will follow a similar format with the probable destination of a city in Germany, maybe Frankfurt or Düsseldorf.

The champions League of women could also follow a similar pattern, with reports in Spain suggesting that the last few games, could be shared between the cities basques of Bilbao and san Sebastian.

UEFA should aim for an early to mid-October for the phases of the groups of the champions League 2020-21, traditionally when you wait until the third day begins.

But how this happens at this point – and when the qualifying rounds take place – is an extremely complex problem to solve with many of the leagues that may still be in progress when the preliminary is generally provided.

There are also major decisions to be taken on the international football.

The match schedule and host venues for the Euro 2020 should be finalized, all indications are that the 12 host cities of origin will still be able to meet their commitments in the summer of 2021.

The play-off matches of this tournament should be played before Christmas, perhaps in one of the “triple header” of the break international in October or November.

The League of nations 2020-21, which was initially supposed to play during the breaks international of September, October and November, will be accompanied at these games.

It is understood that UEFA remains fully committed to the competition, which proved to be a great success at its inaugural race in 2018-19.
