Portugal the most probable host for the UCL final

Tue 11 May 2021 | 20:28

Portugal is probably the replacement for Ataturk stadium despite the Wembley talks.

After the Britain government put Turkey on the red list of at-risk countries, they tried to convince

UEFA

to hold the match at

Wembley stadium

, but it seemed like Britain would be a less beneficial place to hos the match, considering the restrictions on the international travels so now Portugal looks like the most probable option, as the pressures on UEFA increase about not choosing Istanbul as the host.

So with the increase of Porto’s chance to host the Champions League final between

Manchester City

and

Chelsea

, the fans will find it easier to attend the match despite the coronavirus pandemic.

Porto was the host of the competition’s final last season too, where Bayern Munich defeated Paris Saint-Germain and became the UCL winner.

The final decision will be made on Wednesday, and if the UK representatives fail to convince UEFA, the match will probably be played in Porto, Portugal.

The UK government has tried so much to convince UEFA because both teams are from the Premier League, but because of the quarantine rules that the government has placed, it will be hard for UEFA to let Wembley host the most important match of the biggest continental competition between clubs.
