Uefa have taken the decision to suspend the remaining round of the Champions League and the Europa League, plus the Euro 2020 play-offs, 'indefinitely, as they look to find a date in the calendar.

The coronavirus has meant that different countries are at various stages of lockdown, and though domestic governing bodies are assessing options for the season to return in May or June, finding time for European clashes in this period could prove difficult.

As a result, in a meeting in Nyon today, Uefa made the call to suspend all matches until further notice.

This decision includes any friendly matches due to be played by Uefa national teams, and all women's tournaments.

In addition, Uefa have added that the qualification process and procedure for entering European competitions in 2020/21 has been delayed pending further announcements.
