The UEFA still has not decided what will occur with the Champions League and the Europe League by the coronavirus and seems that everything will depend on a meeting programmed for the Tuesday 17 March. The maximum organism of the European football has organised a videoconference for this day between the 55 national Federations, the members of the Executive Committee of the ECA, representatives of the distinct Leagues of Europe and also of the FIFPro. In this meeting will decide the future of all the European competitions, included the Eurocopa of this summer.

LaLiga Already has paralysed the Spanish competition, the same that did the Series To does several days. In Spain there will be football until, like minimum, inside two weeks, although all aims that it could be for enough more time. But, on the contrary of what have done LaLiga and the Real Spanish Federation of Football, in the UEFA have not said at all official and, therefore, the parties of next week of Champions and the ones of this of Europe League are still in foot.

The FC Barcelona-Naples, until it say the contrary, will play on 18 March in the Camp Nou to enclosed door. This 17 in the videoconference will speak of if suspend or no this day of League of Champions, the Europe League and see if the Eurocopa contests in 2020 or in 2021. The ECA will propose that it postpone the tournament of selections and that the calendar of Leagues and of competitions of European clubs lengthen and play in summer.

The crash of turn of eighth of final between culés and napolitanos is in these moments in the air, by what from the Barça goes to prepare it in case at the end it played . The staff will go back to the trainings this Friday in the Ciutat Esportiva of Sant Joan Despí, whereas the Naples did the same, although with a lot of more preventive measures. The Italians are duchando in groups reduced to avoid agglomerations, are eating separate and are having much more care of the usual.

On the meeting it is necessary to take into account that in Spain do not allow flights from Italy. This is another problem to the that would have to confront the Naples if the UEFA decided not suspending the party. The Brazilian journalist Marcelo Bechler ensures that the UEFA has commanded a communiqué to the owners of the rights of TV of the Barcelona-Napoli affirming that the crash will contest to enclosed door without media and that there will be press conferences in the previous. For the moment, there is not at all confirmed and it will be necessary to expect.

Already there is two eliminatory of Champions 'in quarantine'

Seen the seen, would be very odd that the Champions did not suspend , since right now there is two eliminatory that do not go to be able to play whatever happens. One is the turn between the Olympique of Lyon and the Juventus of Turín by the positive by coronavirus of Rugani, central juventino. This will force to his mates to be in quarantine two weeks, by what will not be able to go out of his houses. Neither they will be able to do it in the Real Madrid, since a player of his team of basketball also has given positive and this has caused that the staff of football also have to go through quarantine. Having this in account, would be very rare and irresponsible that the Barça-Naples and the rest of the picture played .
