Upcoming Champions League and Europa League fixtures have been postponed, Uefa has announced. Europe’s football governing body said the decision had been taken “due to the spread of Covid-19” and “decisions made by different governments”.

Both competitions are part-way into their knockout round of 16 matches, with further games scheduled for next week, involving clubs including Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

The Youth League quarter-final matches scheduled on 17 and 18 March will also be postponed, Uefa said in a statement posted online. No decision has been taken about when the games will be replayed and quarter-final draws have also been pushed back, it added.

European football representatives will discuss possible future steps – including whether to postpone this summer’s Euro 2020 international competition – on Tuesday.
