UEFA makes final decision on pending UCL games

UEFA makes final decision on UCL return legs yet to be played

July 9, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
Football's governing body in Europe will host the draw for the next stage on Friday, but there are some ties yet to be decided.

UEFA has finally decided where and how the pending return legs in the UEFA Champions League will be played, and the report couldn't have been better for Barcelona and Manchester City.

The European entity has decided that the return legs in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League will be held in the original venue where they were scheduled, disregarding the original plan that suggested all four games to be played at a neutral venue.

Pressures by Manchester City and Barcelona fructified, and both teams will be allowed to host the second leg of their ties against Real Madrid and Napoli, respectively. This will also be effective in the games where Juventus will host Lyon and Bayern is set to welcome Chelsea.

The original plan suggested that all of these games were held at a neutral venue in Portugal, but some teams did not feel that was the right thing to do. After Barcelona and Manchester City complained, UEFA finally agreed to see both teams playing at their own venues under one condition: to keep all health protocols as suggested by UEFA to restart the tournament.

A decision is yet to be made in regards to the UEFA Europa League games yet to be played, especially since some of those ties had not even started before the coronavirus pause.

Barcelona will host Napoli behind closed doors after their one-all draw in the first leg. Meanwhile, Manchester City will try to eliminate Real Madrid after their 2-1 win in the first leg at the Bernabeu. Meanwhile, Bayern will defend their three-nil advantage over Chelsea and Juventus will try to bounce back after their 1-0 loss against Lyon.
