Why did UEFA choose Portugal again? They're the 3rd worst EU country in terms of active cases per 1M population.

It should have been Estonia or Finland. More suitable weather, decent pitches, few COVID19 cases.

Even Klopp :) of course, Real Madrid don't have great chances because they are almost out, and their odds would shoot up if they actually eliminate Man City. In any case I fear City more. Plus I'd like to see us playing against Real Madrid with VAR for a change. Last but not least, it would be so nice to have 0 English clubs in the QFs so that the EPL "best league in the world" trolls go into hiding.


While I agree, Real have won every game since the break and I think are in their best winning run this season. They might also be heading into the CL on a high after finally winning La Liga.

I think we’ve reached the stage where people realise that with good precautions in place professional sport is not really affected by the Covid situation in the “outside world”. Leicester are still playing even though their city is locked down

They would need to get to Lisbon first from countries badly affected like the UK, Spain and Italy. And making sure they stay away from the stadium is the responsibility of the local authorities not uefa

Rule changes for this season's Champions League
The remainder of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League season has been mapped out, and it is not just dates and venues that have changed.

UEFA.com runs through the key amendments.
How has the format changed?
Quarter-finals and semi-finals will now take place as single-leg ties.
Where will matches take place?
From the quarter-finals, all matches take place at two stadiums in Lisbon, Portugal:

Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica
Estádio José Alvalade

Unplayed round of 16 second legs will be held either at the club's home ground or at a venue assigned by UEFA.

The final will be staged at the Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica
Can clubs register new players?
Yes, teams can register a maximum of three new 'List A' players. But there are a couple of caveats:

Each squad is still limited to 25 List A players (players can be removed to make room);
Players must have been already registered and eligible to play for the club at domestic level since 3 February.Will there be more substitutes?
Teams will be able to make five substitutions but will only be allowed to make these changes at three points in the game. These three occasions do not include changes at half-time, between the end of normal playing time and extra time, and at half-time during extra time. One additional substitution will be allowed during extra time.

There will also be more player to choose from: a total of 23 players will be allowed on the match sheet instead of 18, something usually only permitted for the final.

Well if they’re returning on the 22nd it makes sense, no? One week training, one match, one week training, Chelsea.

Probably don’t want to risk the players catching COVID.

Have you been living under a rock? Rhetorical question, I know you live in a small country outside the EU

It’s what we did during the forced Bundesliga sabbatical: the team meat via zoom (or whatever) and do high intensity exercises for about 45minutes every day...

Nope I had no idea that was a thing but I did tune out of all things sport during the lockdown period as it just depressed me
