UEFA Champions League

UEFA is discussing the possibility of the Champions League final being played on 29 August 2020. 

European football's governing body is scheduled to meet on 23 April to discuss how to complete the campaign. Matches were suspended on 1 April due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Europe.

On the table is a possible agreement that domestic leagues be concluded early with UEFA's approval. UEFA want to complete the season in it’s entirety at the end of August with all outstanding matches being played.

That could see the 2019-20 Champions League final taking place at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey on 29 August. The Europa League final would be held at the Stadion Energa in Gdańsk, Poland on 26 August.

There are two possibilities that are reportedly being considered.

The first is for the Champions League quarter-finals and semi-finals to be played as two-legged matches in July and August. The second is playing one-off matches after the conclusion of the domestic seasons, potentially reducing the end of the competition into a week-long mini tournament.

Four of the eight Champions League quarter-finalists are already known including Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig, Atalanta and Atlético Madrid. The four remaining ties to be decided are Real Madrid vs Manchester City, Chelsea vs Bayern Munich, Lyon vs Juventus and Napoli vs Barcelona.

The Europa League is slightly more complicated with all eight Last 16 second-leg ties still to be played. Two matches involving Inter Milan vs Getafe and Sevilla vs Roma have yet to play the first legs.
