Not a different Tom Hanks film featuring him succumbing to a dreadful illness, which might have been handled better by less uncaring governments, then?

Champions League:
Atletico v Chelsea in Bucharest.
RB Leipzig v Liverpool in Budapest.
Monchengladbach v Man City in Budapest.

Europa League:
Real Sociedad v Man Utd in Turin
Benfica v Arsenal in Rome (1st leg)
Arsenal v Benfica (2nd leg) was meant to be in Athens, but now will be somewhere else (TBC).

I've got no idea if any other matches have been moved, but this seems to be it (so far) for the English clubs.

All getting a bit tricky now, isn't it.
Arsenal v Benfica now confirmed in Athens.
Wolfsberger v Spurs moved from Austria to Budapest.

A new Champions League format, featuring a 10-match first phase from 2024, is expected to be agreed by Uefa on Wednesday.

The proposal, which has been under discussion for almost two years, will be finalised on Tuesday and then signed off by Uefa's executive committee.
Under the new format, the current group phase will be scrapped.

In its place, the number of qualifiers will be expanded from 32 to 36, with space for two 'wild card' entries.

The wild cards will be reserved for clubs with the highest Uefa co-efficient - points used to rank clubs based on past European success - who have not qualified for the competition through their league position.

If the format was being used now, based on the current table it would mean Liverpool would gain a Champions League spot despite being seventh in the Premier League.

Even if the League Cup were to be scrapped, there is no way for the extra games to be squeezed into the season for a 20-team Premier League.
