There’s a small possibility Real Madrid vs Chelsea may not go ahead

UEFA president, Aleksander Ceferin, has said there is a “small possibility” that the Champions League semi-final first leg between Real Madrid and Chelsea next week, may not go ahead as punishment for their role in the European Super League.

Real and Chelsea were both part of the 12 big clubs, who announced their intention to form a breakaway competition on Sunday night.

It has now collapsed following protests from fans, players, managers and pundits.

Three of those teams – Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid – are still in the Champions League, while Arsenal and Manchester United are to play in the Europa League semi-finals.

Ceferin has admitted there is a chance the Champions League semi-finals will not go ahead, but warned broadcasting deals make it unlikely.

“The key is that this season has already started, so broadcasters would come at us for damages if we don’t play the semi-finals,” he said on Slovenian TV channel 24UR.

“So, there’s a relatively small possibility that this match isn’t played next week. But, things could be a little different in the future.”
