UEFA has confirmed that the away goals rule will be abolished from Europea competitons and will be put into place from the 2021-22 season.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said: “The impact of the rule now runs counter to its original purpose as, in fact, it now dissuades home teams – especially in first legs – from attacking, because they fear conceding a goal that would give their opponents a crucial advantage.”
