After some of Europe’s top leagues have determined the time to play the rest of the season, the old continent’s cup tournaments are also looking to finish the season. Expected, UEFA C1 Cup will return in August, especially the Champions League final can take place on August 29.
The Champions League final will kick on August 29
As it is known, despite many meetings, UEFA has not been able to determine the time to reorganize the Champions League Final and Europa League this season. They have only managed to postpone the time to hold the EURO 2020 finals until next summer.
It can be said that resuming the Champions League and Europa League is much more difficult and complicated than the task of bringing a league back. Simply put, this is a continental playground, involving many different countries, not within a certain territory.
UEFA must find unity and a reasonable solution for all clubs from many different leagues. This is a very clearly difficult task. Some major leagues, where there are still teams participating in the Champions League Final or Europa League, have canceled the rest of the season, like France, the Netherlands or Belgium. That is, clubs in these countries cannot compete in the domestic league, or are not allowed to practice, so how can they prepare for matches on the continental level?
However, the Champions League has only 17 matches left as the teams have completed 12/16 matches in this round. Meanwhile, the Europa League still has 27 games because it has just finished 4 matches in the first round of 1/8.
However, the two most prestigious playgrounds in Europe cannot therefore not play the rest of this season because it will be a great loss for not only UEFA but also for many clubs. Everyone knows, the Champions League or the Europa League, which is considered one of the main sources of income for many teams each season. By this time, there is not much time, even it is very urgent so UEFA needs to give a certain time to reorganize these 2 playgrounds.
According to European media, UEFA has finally found a time to reorganize the Champions League and Europa League. Specifically, since most European leagues will end in the first week of August, UEFA wants the rest of the Champions League and the Europa League to take place in that month. Even the Champions League and Europa League finals are scheduled to take place on August 26 and 29 respectively; Immediately after the end of the league, the same way it ended in the previous normal season.
The end of August can also be considered as the deadline that the Champions League Final and Europa League this season must occur, otherwise, it will occupy the time fund of the following season. According to the plan, the Champions League 2020/21 season will start later than usual, specifically, the group stage will start from October, instead of usually taking place from mid-September as every year.
17 matches and 27 matches
Both the Champions League and the Europa League this season are unfinished in the 1/8 round. However, the Champions League has only 17 matches left as the teams have completed 12/16 matches in this round. Meanwhile, the Europa League still has 27 games because it has just finished 4 matches in the first round of 1/8.
