Champions League set to be decided in World Cup style tournament with Lisbon likely hosts

Some clubs are though pushing for the final to be bought forward to August 22, to allow greater time for a pre-season break before the next campaign starts.

Munich and Madrid are also on the table as possible venues for the min-finals tournaments but it is understood that Lisbon is favourite at the moment.

The Europa League could be played at the same city according to one plan, but earlier than the Champions League.

When football was halted, the Europa League round of 16 had only just begun, with six of the eight first legs played.
