All Champions League and Europa League games next week postponed

UEFA Champions League and Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round Draws

UEFA Champions League and Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round Draws

Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid, Atalanta, and RB Leipzig all booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League last week, and we now have to wait for the return dates, or communication on what will happen to Manchester City, Real Madrid, Lyon, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Barcelona, and Napoli.

There have been more than 135,000 cases and 4,900 deaths globally since the virus outbreak started late past year.

UEFA are yet to make a statement on how the current postponements will impact the 2020 UEFA European Championship, which is scheduled to kick off on 12 June. Leicester said Thursday that three players had "extremely mild illness" and would self-isolate as a precaution.

"This crisis is also causing very serious sporting and financial consequences to all parties involved in the game".

The English Football League announced Friday that the country's top-flight soccer leagues, including the Premier League, will halt play until at least April 3, when the situation will be reviewed.

Of course, it's important to remember household bleach should never be mixed with ammonia or other cleansers for safety reasons. Just keep in mind that porous materials like marble, porcelain, and unfinished wood can be damaged by long-term bleach use.

Federation Internationale de Football Association have also said that the rules which normally oblige clubs to release players for national team matches will not apply for the up-coming global windows in March/April.

"Let's be honest, there are much more important priorities than any sport".

Two more clubs said some players or staff would isolate. That measure also affects Sunday's Old Firm match between Glasgow rivals Rangers and Celtic.

Euro 2020 already faces the problem that the remaining qualifying playoffs for the tournament, with 16 nations battling for four places, are scheduled for 26 and 31 March.

The report details how the easiest solution now seems to be to move Euro 2020 to June 2021, giving time for the leagues across Europe to finish in time, ahead of next season. The plan requires teams, fans and officials to travel across the continent - an added risk to spread the virus.
