March 15 – I have an interesting idea. UEFA is thinking about what to decide on European cups. There are several options, and the “Daily Telegraph” presents them. We can play at least one match at the quarter-finals and semi-finals levels, or the Final Four tournaments in Istanbul (host of the LM final) and Gdańsk (host of the LE final).
• Champions League semi-finals and final played over a four-day period in Istanbul
• Same for Europa League in Gdansk
• Or… make quarter-finals and semi-finals one-legged ties
