  Italian Federation head Gravina opposes Super League, hopeful of fans at Euro 2021 fixtures Italian Federation head Gravina opposes Super League, hopeful of fans at Euro 2021 fixturesGravina is up for re-election on Monday against the current president of the amateur leagues, Cosimo Sibilia, having held the top job at the FIGC since October 2018.

The second round of the Europa League is over, in the Champions League at least the first legs of the round of 16 have been completed - and the first conclusion to be drawn is that the games are not at all to the taste of the Bundesliga teams have run.

Bayer Leverkusen and TSG Hoffenheim embarrassed themselves in the Europa League against YB Bern and Molde FK, which means that no German club is represented in the smaller of the two international cup competitions. In the Champions League, Gladbach and RB Leipzig had no chance and are facing the end, only the FC Bayern and Borussia Dortmund were able to hold up the German flags.

UEFA cancels Youth League

 UEFA cancels Youth League The UEFA Youth League should start this season with a new mode. A draw has already been made, the competition will not take place. The UEFA Executive Committee canceled it on Wednesday. © imago images There will be no UEFA Youth League this season. Normally the competition is played with a group stage followed by a knockout stage. But this season there should be a different mode due to the corona pandemic, at the beginning there should be a knockout round with 64 participants.

The lousy results on the international stage naturally have an impact on the UEFA 5-year standings. Although the Italians have not covered themselves with fame, the southern Europeans' lead over the Bundesliga has increased. Germany thus remains in fourth place.

After all: There is no pressure from behind, because France is still miles away on the one hand, and on the other hand even fewer points than Germany were able to score this season.

Spain and England are enthroned by a large margin - the gap has recently become smaller, however, as the Premier League teams showed almost no nakedness. Only Leicester City had to give up prematurely in the Europa League, all other English clubs are fully on course.

In the #ChampionsLeague , two out of four Bundesliga clubs are about to end. In the #EuropaLeague , for the first time since 13/14, no German club made it into the round of 16.

This is of course noticeable in the UEFA five-year standings:? pic.twitter.com/FOBQj06vVv
