With August being the target month for UEFA Champions League action to resume, Europe’s governing body is looking at three possible destinations to conclude the competition.
Lisbon, Portugal, Frankfurt, Germany, and Moscow, Russia, are the three hub cities that UEFA is mulling over with Lisbon being the frontrunners according to Bild.
A couple of reasons why Lisbon is the favorite is that there are no Portuguese clubs in the tournament, so it’s an even playing field. Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig remain in the competition, which hurts Frankfurt’s chances.
In Moscow, there’s no concrete number of cases that Russia is dealing with when it comes to coronavirus, so with no unbiased data to let UEFA know how Russia is dealing with this pandemic, it might not be the safest environment.
Meanwhile, in Portugal, the government was ahead of the curb to try and put a stop to the virus from spreading at a high-rate. With their cases under control, it seems as though Lisbon could be where the 2019-20 Champions League season concludes.
UEFA is expecting to decide by June 17 on this matter. Paris Saint-Germain is in the quarter-finals and will await a draw to see their next opponent.
