    When Euro get postponed and then cancelled I bet Juve will walk out with a gold even though its nationals.

    If Euro gets postponed it's probably for 2021. Initially it's gonna be for a couple of weeks but that's unrealistic at this stage. It won't get cancelled unless we have Spanish flu developments.

    Champions League: Lisbon favourite to stage last-eight mini-tournament

    Lisbon is the favourite to host an eight-team Champions League knockout tournament in August, if it is given the go-ahead by governing body Uefa.

    Uefa is planning to move the final from Istanbul, where it was due to be held on 30 May, for the new format.

    The Europa League final, due to be held in Gdansk, Poland on 27 May, is likely to be moved to Germany.

    Europe's continental cup competitions were stopped in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Uefa's executive committee will make its decision on 17 June.

    Meetings over the past few weeks have debated various scenarios, including completing the tournament in two-legged ties as originally planned.

    But recent discussions have centred on the type of format world governing body Fifa is aiming for with its Club World Cup concept, which it is felt would provide the most entertaining option for broadcasters and TV viewers.

    It would mean the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final being played in one location as a mini-tournament behind closed doors.

    The Champions League final would be played on 23 August, with the Europa League final taking place on 21 August.

    Spain, Germany and Russia have been mentioned as potential hosts for the Champions League but given its location and the fact it has no teams left in this season's tournament, Portugal is viewed as the most likely option.

    Lisbon has two stadiums with the facilities required to host high-profile matches, and hotels to accommodate the required number of teams.

    The Portuguese Primeira Liga resumed on 3 June and most coronavirus restrictions in the country are being lifted this month.

    In Germany, the Bundesliga restarted on 16 May and venues in Gelsenkirchen, Cologne, Duisberg and Dusseldorf are likely to stage Europa League games.
    What about remaining last-16 games?

    What is less clear is how the outstanding last-16 matches in both the Champions League and Europa League will be settled.

    Ideally, Uefa would like these to be played in the same locations as the 'final eight' games to reduce the potential for coronavirus-related postponements.

    However, many clubs are resistant to this idea as it means giving up home advantage in delicately-placed two-legged ties.

    In the Champions League, Manchester City are 2-1 up after the away leg of their tie with Real Madrid. Barcelona drew 1-1 at Napoli, while Juventus are 1-0 down after their trip to Lyon.

    In the Europa League, Wolves drew 1-1 at Olympiakos in the first leg of their last-16 tie, while Manchester United beat LASK 5-0 in Austria and Rangers lost 3-1 at home to Bayer Leverkusen. Two Europa League ties, both involving clubs from Spain and Italy, are yet to play, although it is felt these could be played as one-off ties.

    Clubs in Italy, Spain, Germany and England are due to host last-16 games in the Champions League and the Europa League, with three more from Ukraine, Switzerland and Denmark also needed for the latter competition.

    Uefa is thought to be reluctant to use different formats for its two flagship club competitions.

    Not sure if it's true but apparently Werner told Leipzig he will not play in the CL quarter finals as he wants to complete his transfer to Chelsea earlier. Also the Lyon player who scored against Juventus wont play the second league as he signed for Hertha (I believe).

    CL is going to be so wierd with these type of scenarios where players might already sign for other teams and not play in these games.

    I understand to an extent why Werner would want to do that, but I'm not enamored by it and I wonder how his (soon-to-be former) teammates feel about that. I guess blame the bizarre circumstances of it all more than anything else.

    Tousart had signed with Hertha in January and they left him on loan at Lyon till the end of the season. Hertha just refused to extend the loan.

    The situation is going to be really weird. How can you expect from a player to give his 100% when he knows he has already been sold?

    According to RMC, Thomas Meunier & Edinson Cavani both decided not to accept contract extensions from PSG past 30th June & will not play for the club in the rest of the Champions' League fixtures. This is gonna be fun.

    Wow, I'm not a fan of PSG and their owners, but thats a cunt move from both of them. They couldn't even sign an extension for literally like another few weeks? Guess they want to enjoy the summer rather than play football with the title already won. Can you imagine the regret if PSG end up winning the Champions League without them

    No, it's not about summer vacation. It's about the players not risking (injuries) their new contracts which they will sign as free agents. Last time for these guys to make big money in their careers.

    Well, they're free to sign Bosmans, right? They could sign a pre-contract that is guaranteed for injury with a different club and still play for PSG until the season is over.
