LASK v Man Utd in doubt over COVID-19 as UEFA review whether to suspend European competitions

Marca have a huge report stating that UEFA are set to announce that the Champions League and Europa League will be suspended immediately, coming a day too late for Liverpool.

There has been no official announcement as of yet, but it is widely expected within the next few hours that there is a total shutdown across the two competitions.

That could mean today’s first leg with LASK won’t even get played, despite United having already travelled to Austria thinking that the match would go ahead but behind closed doors because of the coronavirus outbreak.
