Chelsea’s UCL semi-final clash against Real Madrid has been thrown into doubt as the Spanish giants face a possible kick out from the competition.
The Blues’ Champions League semi-final first leg against Real Madrid is scheduled to take place on April 27. However, the tie itself might now be in jeopardy – The Telegraph quote Aleksander Ceferin, the UEFA president, claiming that there was a “relatively small possibility” Real’s semi-final against Chelsea would not take place.
This development is as a result of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez’s comments where he claimed that the Super League is on ‘standby’, indicating that he wants to get back to this idea in the future.
Also, it has been reported that UEFA want to ‘throw Real Madrid out’ of next season’s competition as the Los Blancos refuse to walk away from the Super League.
Meanwhile, it yet unknown what will happen to Chelsea if Madrid is kicked out of this season’s tournament – at the moment, there is no official announcement on the semi-final tie so we will have to await more news.
