Real Madrid are unlikely to come under the wrath of UEFA and be kicked out of the Champions League this season according to Spanish radio Cope. The Madrid club should therefore play well in the semi-finals against Chlesea.
A little sentence from Aleksander Ceferin cast doubt on the holding of the Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Chelsea (Tuesday, April 27 on RMC Sport 1). “There is a relatively small chance that this match will not take place next week,” even blurted out the UEFA president after the Super League crisis.
Leader of the sling of the twelve major European clubs, Florentino Perez should not however see Real be deprived of his two games against the Blues. According to information from the El Partizado broadcast on Spanish radio Cope, the Merengue club will be well authorized to fight for a place in the C1 final.
The gang in Zizou deserved their qualification
While a decision of the UEFA executive committee is expected this Friday concerning the host cities of the Euro, and in particular the replacement of Bilbao and Dublin by Seville and Saint Petersburg, the participation of Real Madrid in the semi-finals of Champions League could also be confirmed.
Despite President Florentino Perez’s major role in the Super League, UEFA is reportedly not penalizing the team coached by Zinedine Zidane. Carried in particular by a Karim Benzema author of five goals in eight appearances, the Madrid club won its place in the last four on the field by eliminating Atalanta Bergamo or Liverpool during the final phase.

The absence of possible sanctions against slinging clubs for the 2020-2021 season would come as no surprise. As Aleksander Ceferin notably recalled this Wednesday.
“The season has already started and the televisions would claim damages from us in the event of cancellation of the semi-finals”, explained the Slovenian leader. And the UEFA president added: “But it will be a little different in the future.”
If Real Madrid and the eleven other teams entered in the Super League should escape sanctions for this edition of the Champions League or the Europa League, this may not be the case for the 2021-2022 season. In the meantime, as Florentino Perez himself said, the Merengue must “win the fourteenth”
