UEFA have officially announced their decision to postpone all fixtures scheduled for next week until further notice. This means that Bayern Munich’s game against Chelsea at the Allianz Arena, which was supposed to go ahead behind closed doors, is now postponed.

This comes after UEFA held a video conference meeting on Thursday consisting of the representatives of 55 member associations, boards of European Club association and the European leagues, as well as a representative of FIFPro.

The second leg of the Bayern Munich-Chelsea Round of 16 fixture was set to be postponed regardless of UEFA’s decision due to Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi testing positive for the coronavirus. Following the test results, the entire Chelsea squad has been in self-isolation.

Fortunately, however, Hudson-Odoi seems to have made a speedy recovery. He took to his social media accounts to confirm the news of the test results himself, while also adding that he has recovered from the coronavirus but will continue to adhere to the health guidelines and be in isolation for at least another week.
