UEFA plans to referendum a solution that can solve the disordered schedule of the European Leagues: Champions League and Europa League this season.
UEFA uses a successive plan to rescue the European Leagues: MU & the big guys how?
Recently, UEFA has postponed all matches within the 1/8 Champions League and Europa League round because of the rapid spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. Today 17/3, UEFA will meet the member federations to make decisions about the schedule of the major and ongoing European Leagues, especially the Euro 2020 finals, then the Champions League and Europa. League.
AS Daily newspaper reported, UEFA Secretary General Giorgio Marchetti will present a plan called “Final Four” to solve problems about the schedule of the two leading European club-level tournaments. The move to EURO 2020 finals to 2021 could help the European Leagues end in June and July after coming back. In addition, the Champions League and the Europa League will need a new scheduling method to ensure that all European Leagues end at the same time.
Accordingly, UEFA expects the remaining matches of the 1/8 round to be played as usual after returning. Eight teams are then drawn into four pairs to play one match at a time, with the first ranked team having the advantage of playing at home or neutral.
After identifying the 4 teams to the semi-finals, this time the mini-tournament plan called “Final Four” will take place. Specifically, four semi-finals of the C1 Cup will go to Istanbul (Turkey), while four semi-finals of the Europa League to the city to organize the final will be Gdansk (Poland). Here, teams will play 3 matches including 2 semi-finals and 1 final, within 4 days to find the champion.
The “Final Four” formula will be voted on March 17 at a special meeting of 55 members of the European Football Federation. This is considered the most likely plan in a difficult situation because of the stressful epidemic as currently.
MU Europa League champion candidate will almost certainly reach the quarterfinals after having a 5-0 victory in the first leg away from the LASK representative Austria. However, the return leg may be the last time they can play at home in the Europa League this season, in the way of UEFA. The same applies to Man City, who are thirsty for the Champions League title and have just won a 2-1 victory over Real at the Bernabeu.
UEFA meeting to decide EURO 2020: “Headache” 275 million pounds
On March 17, the whole of Europe will hold its breath to watch the meeting of the European football federation (UEFA) with the full attendance of 55 members and chaired by chairman Aleksander Ceferin. The main content of the meeting will focus on the fate of the European Leagues: EURO 2020, Champions League 2019/20 and Europa League 2019/20.
Currently, the European leagues along with the C1, Europa League Cup are all delayed due to the effect of Corona virus. Therefore, if EURO 2020 still goes as planned, the member countries such as England, Germany, Spain, Italy … will face many difficulties in completing the season, thus directly affecting them to the C1 and Europa League.
According to The Orletic writer David Orstein, countries want to prioritize ending the domestic tournament as usual instead of canceling to avoid unnecessary incidents. Therefore, it is almost certain that EURO 2020 will be postponed for one year and transferred to 2021.
However, if you postpone the European finals to June 2021, then UEFA will incur a small fee. According to Atletic, that figure is up to 275 million pounds and the European football federation wants member countries to pay compensation for the money.
The European Football Federation has a total of 55 members, so each country must only pay about 5 million pounds for EURO 2020 to postpone for one year. However, not every Football Federation has the financial capacity to bear the above expenses, so this issue will continue to be discussed in today’s meeting.
A day earlier, many sources believed that UEFA had a solution for the Champions League and the Europa League. Accordingly, UEFA expects the remaining matches of the 1/8 round to be played as usual after football activities return. Eight teams are then drawn into four pairs to play one match at a time, with the first ranked team having the advantage of playing at home or neutral.
Once four teams have been identified to the semifinals, a mini tournament solution called “Final Four” will play. Specifically, four semi-finals of the C1 Cup will go to Istanbul (Turkey), while four semi-finals of the Europa League to the city to organize the final will be Gdansk (Poland). Here, teams will play 3 matches including 2 semi-finals and 1 final, within 4 days to find the champion.
If true to the press has reported, UEFA almost set the outcome of the meeting from the beginning. That is shortening the Champions League, Europa League and postponing EURO 2020 to 2021. However, the details will still be discussed in detail in this meeting. https://thenewssports.net/
