UEFA is planning tough sanctions against the twelve founding clubs of the Super League - FC Bayern and Borussia Dortmund could benefit from this in the Champions League.

Montreux - It has been official since Monday.

Twelve top clubs from England, Italy and Spain have come out of cover and are founding their own league - the Super League.

A frontal attack on European football, its basis and values.

German teams did not initially participate in the plans *, but FC Bayern * and Borussia Dortmund * could now be among the big winners.

Shortly after the announcement of the Super League, the European Football Association had made it clear that it would take legal action against the renegade clubs with all the severity and legal means available.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin announced on Monday that he would use “all possible sanctions”.

"My personal opinion is: clubs and players should be banned from the competitions as soon as possible."

Whether there is a possibility of excluding those affected from the current European Cup competitions is unclear, but is currently being legally clarified, said Ceferin.

UEFA wants to kick Super League participants out of the Champions League immediately

UEFA will hold a lightning crisis meeting on Tuesday to discuss the Super League founders' spin-off plans.

The UEFA Executive Committee meets on Friday and is planning tough sanctions.

The chairman of the Danish association and member of the UEFA Executive Committee, Jesper Möller, expects the Super League participants to be excluded from the current European Cup.

“There will be an extraordinary meeting of the Executive Committee on Friday.

I expect the twelve clubs to be thrown out, ”

said Möller to the Danish broadcaster DR Sporten.

Then you have to see how the Champions League * will be played to the end.

Of the four Champions League semi-finalists, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea FC are among the twelve clubs that want to create a European Super League.

Then only Bayern conqueror Paris Saint-Germain would be left, who does not belong to the alliance of big clubs.

In the Europa League, the English clubs Manchester United and Arsenal would be affected by exclusion.

Champions League madness: FC Bayern and BVB still in the semi-finals?

But what would happen after a possible ban against these teams in the current season?

There are two possible scenarios.

PSG are crowned Champions League winners without a fight.

An unsatisfactory solution, the image of the premier class would be damaged and the breakaway clubs would have achieved partial success.

In addition, a large amount of TV money would be lost.

It is much more likely that the already eliminated quarter-finalists FC Bayern, Dortmund and Porto will move up and complete the field of participants in the semifinals together with PSG.

That would suddenly give Bayern another chance to defend their title.

It could come to a curious constellation that the German record champions would meet PSG again in the final and could take revenge for the end in the quarter-finals beforehand.

Bayern boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has already commented on the establishment of the new Super League.
