According to Daily Mail, UEFA are set for talks this week that could see a radical overhaul of the Champions League group stage format.
The report claims UEFA are set to propose a change to the Champions League group stage format that would see clubs playing 10 different opponents in the group stage.
It would see 32 or 36 teams put together in a single division – but they would not all play each other. A random draw would throw up a team’s 10 matches, all against different opponents. Five matches would be at home and five away.
Teams would then compete for points in a single league table and the top 16 clubs would go on to the knockout stages.
UEFA reportedly hope the new Champions League format will provide a solution to the continent’s biggest sides wanting more matches against each other.
