Europa League Final on Aug 27?

The Europa League, involving Inter and Roma, could be played from August 2 to the Final in Gdansk on August 27, claim Sky Sport Italia.

UEFA are considering moving both the Champions League and Europa League to August with a game every three days, to get the tournament concluded after the coronavirus pandemic caused a shutdown.

The priority is to get domestic league competitions finished first, then the UEFA tournaments can take centre stage.

Inter are due to play Getafe home and away for the Europa League Round of 16, while Roma are up against Sevilla.

These were the only two first leg fixtures not played, as Italy and Spain were the only countries at that time hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the first leg should be on August 2-3, with the return fixture on August 6.

They would all then go into a flurry of activity, with the quarter-finals played on August 10 and 13.

The semi-finals are then planned for August 17 and 20, leading up to the Europa League Final in Gdansk on August 27.

The Champions League is expected to go along similar lines from August 7 through to the Final in Istanbul on August 29.
