    Linfield got a decent crack at Legia tonight on a similar basis, no ?

    I know Drita the Kosovans had players actually test positive but taking the above post as accurate then it could essentially be viewed as the same ?

    I think this shows that in this seasons format an away draw is a positive as the onus is on the home team to host the game in suitable location. If the above UEFA information is accurate then it looks like the Lithuanians may end up forfeiting the game.

    I think at some point each team or association is going to fall foul of that rule. Wouldn't it make more sense for all fixtures to be played in neutral venues, and then each association look for special exemptions from their government/authorities on return.

    Absolutely - and there are exemptions in many countries. An IFA team of refs are in Andorra tomorrow and based on green / red lists would have to quarantine. However IFA got them on elite athlete list - given only 4 FIFA referees in country (same as FAI) so quarantine doesnt apply.

    With a 2nd Kosovan team unable to play last night (8 positive tests on arrival in Gibraltar) this is going to the summer of asterixs and who gets to group stages - where rules likely to change to suit big boys - could be luck of the draws and nothing to do with sporting ability.

    Finland just added Ireland to its blacklist so next week's match is up in the air. I assume they will try to get permission to travel as otherwise I think they forfeit.
    Could be wrong but it's not rovers fault at this late stage, uefa could insist on a switch to a neutral venue I suppose but I doubt it.

    "Furthermore, if a country places new travel restrictions after next Monday's draw, making the match impossible, then the tie will be forfeited by the respective country."

    It really depends upon what is considered "making the tie impossible". You would think that the logistics of arranging a suitable neutral venue and organising travel etc on a week's notice would be an unreasonable ask, in which case Rovers should be awarded the tie if Tampere can't travel. Then again, all of the rest of the UEFA guidance heavily emphasises the responsibility of the home team to sort neutral venues so who knows what way it will pan out.

    With all of this going on and potential byes happening left, right and centre what's the story with the prize money? Are both teams in a tie still getting the usual amount for win/loss/ (*dependant of course) or have UEFA changed it due to the circumstances?

    Good question,
    The money in round 1 is for getting there so to speak you get it even if you lose (both teams do).
    The money in round two is for getting there as well so id say yes you get the money either way.

    Thats assuming UEFA dont order a neutral venue but i think its a bit late for that.

    I think i asked that earlier, where are UEFA getting all this money? It would be much fairer if the money was divided between both teams in the event of a forfeit.

    BUt like refjohn suggests above, if this starts happening left right and centre i can see UEFA doing something to ensure the big teams still end up in the group stages - especially in the champions league.

    Presumably UEFA's revenues are relatively iunscathed so far :

    - Most of their sponsors are big multinational companies with very deep pockets.
    - Even if they weren't, they'll be on long-term contracts so couldn't just pull the plug on UEFA unless they were going bankrupt.
    - The TV revenues will remain, and may even have strengthened on the basis that people are staying at home more and fans can't attend games in-person.

    The one hit they'll have taken will have been over the 2020 Euros. But UEFA itself doubtless will have good cash reserves and very amenable bankers. So all-in-all I suspect they're well placed to weather a one year storm.

    Good team selection by Perth. Don't think there can be any complaints about that anyway.

    Very attacking bench too. No Boyle, Massey or Sloggett in the squad.

    Must be I just checked it and its working. Its sadly standard practise not make the broadcast available to an non Irish IP address. Im not sure it would even work in the north due to the IP address.

    That looked like it could come at anytime. Dundalk just brutal at the back as they have been since the restart. Shame because midfield and wings they are on top.

    But there really is no excuse in this day and age for that and Rogers should do better. Was a big call bringing gartland back in after a long injury and the fact these two up front for them are fast.

    Not sure whether their league was suspended or not , if so they'll tire a bit but they look fairly content with Dundalk.
