UEFA set dates for Champions, Europa Leagues finals

The final was due to be played at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul on May 30, but could now be pushed back to August 29 as a result of the coronavirus crisis. The Europa League final in Gdansk has been earmarked for August 26. Four Champions League last-16 second-leg ties have still to be concluded, including Manchester City against Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium and Chelsea’s trip to Bayern Munich. But there have been discussions about playing the matches between July 28 and 29, with the rest concluded in August. Europa League ties would, in theory, be played in the same weeks although there are still 10 last-16 matches to factor in – two first-leg ties and eight second legs. Manchester United hold a 5-0 away first-leg advantage over LASK, while Wolves face Olympiacos at Molineux, having drawn 1-1 in Greece. UEFA is open to playing European matches concurrently with domestic games but the strong preference of many clubs has been to finish their own league campaigns before turning their attention to Europe. UEFA has also discussed the possibility of playing the remaining Champions League and Europa League ties over one leg if necessary and has even proposed the idea of a mini-tournament, where all the quarter-final, semi-final and final matches are played over one leg over the course of a week in one location. But the best-case scenario remains for all the existing matches to be played as broadcasters have paid tens of millions to televise games.Tags: Champions LeagueEuropa Leaguelast_img read more

Posted on

first_imgCLEAR LAKE — Clear Lake city councilman Bennett Smith has announced he will run for a seat in the Iowa House. Smith is an instructor of history and political science at North Iowa Area Community College and is currently serving his first term on the Clear Lake City Council. Smith announced last month that he was exploring the possibility of running as an independent candidate for the House District 54 seat. Smith says in a written release that he’s had the opportunity to listen to many people about legislative issues and he’s been grateful for the overwhelming response toward his potential candidacy. Smith adds that as an independent candidate, his objective will be to build a coalition of Republicans, Democrats and independents that want to move Iowa forward with a positive vision for conserving our natural resources, improving our educational outcomes, reforming our healthcare system and promoting economic development across the state. The House District 54 seat covers Clear Lake, the western third of Cerro Gordo County, all of Franklin County, and the northwestern part of Butler County. Incumbent Linda Upmeyer of Clear Lake in October announced that she was stepping down as Speaker of the House for the upcoming session as she planned not to seek re-election to the seat.last_img read more
