All UEFA Champion’s League Matches are On

UEFA has come out  and clarified that all 40 matches in the Champions League and Europa League next week will go ahead as planned following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

2 international friendlies were cancelled in Belgium and Germany because of security threats. The England vs France fixture at Wembley Stadium went ahead as planned.
Paris Saint-Germain play away next Wednesday against Swedish league toppers Malmo.

Monaco and Anderlecht have come to an agreement on a ban on Belgian fans travelling for their Europa League match on Thursday.

Authorities are trying to get the balance right between keeping everyone safe, and not bending to pressure from fundamentalists. Obviously, top priority must go to keeping everyone safe.

In Spain, the Big One: El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona in Madrid, is scheduled to go ahead, and games in the Belgian Pro League continue as normal, albeit with tighter security measures.
However, the Muster vs Stade Francais rugby match scheduled for Sunday in Paris has been postponed.

The match at Wembley sent a powerful message- English and French fans belted out “La Marseillaise” at the ground. “Against us tyranny’s bloody banner is raised” was a particularly poignant part in the circumstances.

There was tightened security around the stadium with police dogs out, helicopters flying overhead and plenty of armed police about. 1,400 fans travelled over from France to watch the game which England won 2-0.
