Champions League: UEFA Confirms Quarter Final Dates For Champions league
Bundesliga has announced its league will in action starting from 22 May while Serie A is also tipped to continue either this month or next to one, UEFA has indicated that they are working on its competition resumption in August despite agreeing that they are still in darkness over the situation.
According to RMC Sport, French club Lyon who shocked Juventus 1-0, is expected to play the return League in Turin on 8th August.
In a meeting that took place this morning in Turin between the presidents of the main European clubs, UEFA has confirmed that they are determined to finish 2019/2020 edition at all costs.
With other states working on how to either end or continue with championship which could come to an end of July, European football management body would also have found a date for the quarter-finals.
The quarter’s finals are tipped to take place on 10th,11th, or 12th August.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain, who eliminated Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, could make their big comeback in action even after their league was canceled.
Coronavirus: Cannavaro doubts European football will resume before season’s end
Fabio Cannavaro – now in charge of CSL powerhouse Guangzhou Evergrande – is not confident that football will resume by May.
Fabio Cannavaro believes it will be difficult for European football to return before the season ends amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Sport has been brought to a standstill due to COVID-19, with Serie A, LaLiga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and the Premier League all on hiatus.
The Champions League and Europa League finals have also been postponed, with Euro 2020 pushed back to next year following more than 18,800 deaths worldwide – over 9,800 of the casualties from Italy and Spain.
Former Italy, Juventus and Real Madrid defender Cannavaro – now in charge of Chinese Super League powerhouse Guangzhou Evergrande – is not confident that football will resume by May.
“In less than a month it is not known what is going to happen in the world,” the 43-year-old told COPE.
“I think it will take a long time for this to end in Italy and Spain.
“It will be difficult for European football to return before the season ends.”
Cannavaro has been based in China since joining Evergrande in 2014 before returning in 2017, while he was briefly in charge of the national team last year.
China has enforced strict measures to combat the spread of coronavirus, which originated in the country and has claimed more than 3,270 lives.
“The virus in Guangzhou is under control and life is beginning to go back to normal,” Cannavaro added. “There are no more restrictions, only 14 days at home.
“In two days, I finish my quarantine. All of us who come back have to do it.
“Staying at home is essential because we do not give the virus the opportunity to infect more people.
“We have to learn from China, they have more experience in this situation.”
Brilliant Leipzig shine uncomfortable light on Mourinho’s elite credentials
Jose Mourinho’s time at the top table of European football looked done and dusted as RB Leipzig put his Tottenham to the sword.
As Tottenham’s Champions League dreams unravelled in line with Jose Mourinho’s drip-drip doomsaying, it was tempting to wonder how the Spurs boss might have talked up RB Leipzig’s chances were he in the stylish shoes of opposite number Julian Nagelsmann.
How could you expect success for a team looking to Manchester City’s third choice left-back, who was parachuted in as a loan January signing, for a chunk of their attacking threat?
And what about your star striker being unable to train for two weeks, cruelly robbing him of match sharpness?
Oh, that’s before you consider he must line up in a front three alongside a Paris Saint-Germain reject and a big money flop sent packing by Roma.
Of course, Angelino produced a rip-roaring display in this thumping 3-0 win to crown a 4-0 aggregate triumph – raiding relentlessly down the Tottenham right and setting up Marcel Sabitzer’s second of the evening after seeing a fit-again Timo Werner convert his earlier low cross from an offside position.

Dier’s attempt to clear Angelino’s cross that led to the third goal from substitute Emile Forsberg was that of a performer battered and broken by thankless exertions.
Alongside Werner, Christopher Nkunku and Patrik Schick were winning duals and shuttling with creative intent. You could not spot any lingering effect from the back-to-back draws domestically that have checked Leipzig’s Bundesliga title ambitions this month.
Theirs was a performance of purpose, belief and riotous swagger, at least until the final half an hour when they slowed the tempo and tightened the control, squeezing any last lingering drop of Amsterdam fuelled belief in the improbable from a forlorn Tottenham side.
Special legacy compounds ordinary present
Dayot Upamecano imperiously commanded the Leipzig backline, with the sort of performance John Terry or Marco Materazzi might have supplied in one of Mourinho’s great sides.
All the Special One has now are those special memories.
It really is remarkable how quickly this latest scene in the increasingly torturous third act of his career has reverted to recent type.
Mourinho gave a sparky, twinkle-eyed news conference on November 21 last year after he succeeded Mauricio Pochettino. Following three consecutive wins – albeit with six goals conceded – in all competitions – Tottenham were beaten by Manchester United on December 4.
Thirteen days. There ended a honeymoon period shorter than many honeymoons. Spurs did not win consecutive games again until another burst of three in a row at the start of February. They have not won since, with Leipzig extending this slump to six outings.

To quote Alli in his interview to BT Sport immediately afterwards: “We can’t use that as an excuse, we still have quality on the pitch.”
No romance in tough love
Tanguy Ndombele has copped frequent public criticism, presumably because the tactic worked so well with Paul Pogba. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who clatters from one accident-prone 90 minutes to the next at the moment, should be grateful he isn’t a rangy and gifted midfielder. Mourinho really would be fuming then.
But even when the old tricks had lost their shine, Mourinho was still capable of putting together robust defensive outfits.
Tottenham have kept three clean sheets in his 26 matches in charge, with just Aston Villa (42) conceding more than their 37 during this period. Villa’s fellow Premier League relegation candidates Brighton and Hove Albion and Bournemouth are the only teams with fewer shutouts since Mourinho’s November appointment.
Don’t worry, though, because he’s a serial winner, trophies in every job. Well, roll on 2020-21 for that part of the dubious bargain after Leipzig followed Norwich City in making a mockery of supposedly favourable cup draws.
This man for the big occasion is without a Champions League knockout win since April 2014. All that remains is the top-four race in the Premier League. Tottenham are eighth and host a revitalised United on Sunday.
Nagelsmann’s brilliant Leipzig shone a blazing light on this uncomfortable body of evidence that begs an uncomfortable question concerning one of this century’s defining football figures: if you are a club with elite ambitions in Europe, why on earth would you ever appoint Jose Mourinho?
