The Coronavirus pandemic gripped the football world over the last week. Football games held behind closed doors, some leagues were suspended and games postponed. Now, some players and managers tested positive for Covid-19.

UEFA postponed all their Champions League and Europa League games until April 3. 

Now they will reportedly hold talks over how to ensure the tournaments can be finished this season. 

It’s being suggested that the competition will be held in one location and over a shorter time period, according to the Telegraph

The report suggests the idea to hold both the semi-finals and final over four days, with all games being played in Istanbul for the Champions League and Gdansk for the Europa League. 

The report also mentions the possibility of playing all ties over one leg instead of two this season, but no final decision has been made yet.
