Chelsea’s ongoing involvement in this season’s UEFA Champions League will be discussed by UEFA at an emergency meeting tomorrow according to reports on the official UEFA website.
The Blues currently trail German giants Bayern Munich 3-0 from the first leg of their last-16 tie which took place at Stamford Bridge last month.
With the competition having been suspended due to the world Coronavirus pandemic, it is understood that UEFA have called a meeting with their 55 member nations on Tuesday to discuss a number of footballing matters. One of the subjects which is expected to be discussed is the possible actions for this season’s UEFA Champions League. With no end to the virus in sight, this season’s competition could be cancelled or rescheduled for a date much further in the future. With Chelsea being 3-0 down from their first leg against Bayern Munich, there may not be too much impact on The Blues’ involvement in the competition.
With the English Premier League also suspended, UEFA could give guidance to the English footballing authorities on how the domestic season could be concluded. There is talk of a cancellation or to end the campaign based on current points totals. The latter would potentially mean that The Blues would qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League should it go ahead.
Further details are expected to be published shortly after the conclusion of tomorrow’s meeting.
