    UEFA scrap away goals rule

    UEFA have confirmed that the away goals rule will be removed from all UEFA club competitions from the 2021/22 season


    The governing body has confirmed that ties in which the two teams score the same number of goals over the two legs will now have two 15-minute periods of extra time, and, if required, penalty kicks.

    Speaking on the change, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said: "The away goals rule has been an intrinsic part of UEFA competitions since it was introduced in 1965. However, the question of its abolition has been debated at various UEFA meetings over the last few years.

    "Although there was no unanimity of views, many coaches, fans and other football stakeholders have questioned its fairness and have expressed a preference for the rule to be abolished."
