UEFA Champions League

Chelsea vs Real Madrid Champions League semi - final game may not go ahead as planned, says UEFA.

According to UEFA president Alexander Ceferin says that there is a "small possibility" that Chelsea and Real Madrid's champions league semi final will not go ahead as planned as a punishment for their role in the European super league saga.

Both Real Madrid and Chelsea were part of the "12 elite" that initially agreed to join the breakaway super league competition on Sunday night.

However following strong protests from fans, players, pundits and the football fraternity at large lead by Liverpool and Chelsea fans, subsequently leading to the six clubs from England who had agreed to join the league to submit their withdrawal request, the super league was now bound to fail. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli is on record admitting that after withdrawal of the top six clubs from in England, then the super league is in tatters.

Ceferin who called the breakaway clubs 'snakes' 'arrogant' and 'greedy' recently, admitted that the semi-final games may likely go ahead as planned but broadcasting deals may make it unlikely.

With Real Madrid having not pulled out of the super league, attention has now focused on the appropriate action that will be taken on how to move forward and handle the teams that had initially agreed to join the breakaway super league. With Real Madrid president Florentino Perez still at the helm of the super league, chances are likely the game may not go ahead as planned or pushed forward.
