Real Madrid expected to be kicked out of Champions League

Jesper Møller, the Danish FA chairman, told Danish outlet DR Sport that he expects the members of the breakaway group who remain in this season’s Champions League to be removed from the competition.

“[Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea] are going out, and I expect that to happen on Friday,” Møller said. “And then you have to see how to finish the Champions League.”

Earlier on Monday UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin vowed to use all the tools and sanctions at his disposal to fight back against the 12 teams who announced their plans to join a European Super League on Sunday.

Chelsea are set to play Real Madrid and PSG are scheduled to face Manchester City. Should the three breakaways be removed it remains to be seen how UEFA would handle the remainder of the competition. Real Madrid’s quarter-final victory was over yet breakaway side, Liverpool.
