Aleksander Ceferin, president of Uefa, spoke about the deadline for the Champions League to end. The leader mentioned that the tournament cannot happen on August 3. Now, if not, it is not played.

In a German newspaper, the president mentioned that they already have measures taken and are waiting for the evolution of the crisis facing the world due to the coronavirus.

“You can play with the current system or play a single game with a draw between playing at home or away or on a neutral field. For now it is only theoretical that you can play a ‘final to eight’ or a ‘final to four’. On August 3 the Champions League must be finished. The situation is extraordinary. We can play on the same dates as the local championships, at the same time, we must be flexible. If the crisis stops, we will start earlier ”, he declared in an interview with the German television channel ‘ZDF’.

Recall that half the games are missing to be played in the round of 16 of the tournament. So far, Leipzig, Atalanta, PSG and Atlético de Madrid are the teams that are in the quarterfinals.
