Cerezo: Atletico Madrid should be rewarded for their victory over Champions League

Atletico Madrid will be rewarded for their success over Liverpool Champions League champions by handing out the trophy if this current season’s opposition can not be closed.

That’s the perspective on Atletico chairman Enrique Cerezo, who recommended the 2019-20 release victors ought to be the team that took out the dominant champions.

His remarks, probable tongue in cheek, come as UEFA formulates a plan to finish the opposition, with Atletico advancing past the Reds to reach the quarter-finals.

One potential arrangement is to stage matches for the last eight at a solitary host city, with one-off fixtures liable to replace the traditional two-legged challenges.

However, Cerezo has his contemplations about how things could be settled if the Champions League wasn’t possible.

“In the hypothetical case that the coronavirus didn’t play the Champions League, the champion [should] be the person who beat the champion. It despite everything leaves a couple of knockout games, the quarter-finals, the semis, and the final. We understand that UEFA is attempting to centralize all these matches in a single city, Spain, Portugal has been talked about. Nothing is known at this point. In addition to the final phase of the Champions League, there are 11 games left, which can be four games. I imagine the legislature is waiting to perceive how the pandemic is advancing and to make the choice it is thinking about,” Cerezo said to Mundo Deportivo.

In 2014 and 2016, Atletico lost two Champions League finals.

On Sunday, Diego Simeone’s side continues their LaLiga campaign behind closed doors at Athletic Bilbao.

While no confirmation has been given when the European Cup could be finished up, reports propose that it could be held all through August.

Atleti is one of four sides to the quarter-finals, with Paris Saint-Germain, Atalanta, and RB Leipzig advancing to the final eight.
