UEFA set date and time for Champions League and Europa League draws

The historic headquarters of the governing body will play host to the event which is due to start at 12:00 CET on the aforementioned date.

There will be no seedings or drawing regulations with regards to teams from the same country, and anybody will be eligible to play everybody else.

In addition to this, there will be a further draw to determine which team will be the designated home side for the final match in both tournaments.

The footballing world is excited by the prospect of a rather unique end to the 2019/20 European tournaments which will see all matches played in one country and in one-off matches.

Lisbon is set to host the Champions League climax, whilst the Europa League final stages will head to Germany.

From August 12 to August 23 there will be a procession of matches at both Benfica and Sporting’s stadiums, though there are a couple of unfinished two-legged ties that need to be finished first.

Atalanta, RB Leipzig, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain had all officially qualified for the quarter-final of the Champions League, but there is yet to be a definitive result from the following ties: Real Madrid-Manchester City, Chelsea-Bayern Munich, Juventus-Lyon and Barcelona-Napoli.

Cologne, Duisburg, Gelsenkirchen and Dusseldorf will all play host to the Europa League matches that are left in the season.

The round that was not yet completed will take place on August 5 and 6, although ties that didn’t start will now be restricted to a one-off match in accordance with the agreed format change.

So, Inter and Getafe will now be a one-off encounter, whilst Manchester United and LASK will be forced to play a second-leg after they completed their first leg prior to the COVID-19 spread into Europe.
