Real Madrid’s participation in this season’s UEFA champions League is in danger with reports that UEFA want to expel them from the competition after their role in the botched European Super League.
According to some Spanish publication, the 13-time winners are also facing the prospect of being banned from next season tournament .
UEFA chiefs reportedly also want the same fate to happen to Juventus with a decision on the fate of both clubs happening later today .
Speaking on Wednesday, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin revealed there is a ‘small possibility’ that next week’s Champions League semi-final between Real and Chelsea may not go ahead .
Ceferin, however admitted that UEFA may land into problems due to broadcasting rights making the decision to stop the semi final unlikely.
‘The key is that this season has already started, so broadcasters would come at us for damages if we don’t play the semi-finals,’ he said on Slovenian TV channel 24UR.
Real Madrid was part of 12 teams from Italy , England and Spain who had joined the proposed European Super league that crumbled earlier this week.
Only Real Madrid and Juventus are yet to announce their withdrawal.
