ROME – UEFA has not definitively suspended the European cups, as previously thought, but has postponed the Champions League matches Juventus-Lyon and Manchester City-Real Madrid.
The final decision on European football will only be taken at the extraordinary meeting set for UEFA next Tuesday. On this occasion a final decision will be made on:
Champions League, Europa League and Euro 2020. But today it is difficult to think of a correct development of the first itinerant European championship in the history of football.
Playing all these games with open doors in the main European capitals would create an unprecedented maxi contagion. At the time of the coronavirus, one cannot think of such a format for a European football championship.
The postponement of Juventus-Lyon and Manchester City-Real Madrid was inevitable, almost a due act if we consider the fact that the bianconeri and blancos are officially in quarantine.
Juve was quarantined after Daniele Rugani's coronavirus positivity, while Real Madrid was put into a preventive quarantine after the positivity of a blancos basketball player.
You will say, what does basketball have to do with football? Easy, Real Madrid football and Real Madrid basketball train in the same sports center.
