It Tie it 1, the Eredivisie, the Portuguese league and the Belgian have been the first leagues of Europe in deciding cancel the season. While the Bundesliga, that has reiniciado the season this Saturday 16, LaLiga, the Series To and the Premier League worked to return what before, these competitions decided to give carpetazo to the campaign by the pandemia of coronavirus. This decision has not been very received by part of the UEFA neither of his president.
Alekasandr Ceferin Has spoken in several occasions on what seemed him cancel seasons to these heights. The esloveno did not agree and in his last interview said that it left to fall that the clubs of the leagues suspended would have to play previous rounds to access to the Champions League. "I think that the majority of the leagues will be able to finish the championship. Those that have decided not finishing his leagues will have to face the preliminary rounds if they want to participate in the next Champions", commented in beIN.
But seem to be that these words were not of the all correct and that it was the known half the one who misunderstood them. 'Sportive world' has directed directly to the UEFA to ask details on this subject and from the maximum organism of the European football have given explanations that desconocían. Paris Saint-Germain will not have to play any previous phase to contest the next League of Champions as far as explains the mentioned newspaper.

In other words everything will follow as up to now and in the case of Tie it 1 the PSG, like champion, will go in directly to the phase of groups. Also the Olympique of Marseilles, that finished second, will jump the previous rounds. The Rennes, instead, will have to happen this previous as every year.
The UEFA does not want to punish to the clubs
This would finish with the rumours that signalled that the UEFA wanted to punish to the teams of the leagues that had been cancelled. The desencuentro between the domestic championships and the European organism is evident and does not go to solve , but the clubs will not pay by something that has not been in his hand. If LaLiga, the Premier or any one of the other leagues could not restart neither would suffer reprimand any.
