I see our European games will officially be played behind closed doors. Hard to know how that will effect things

Extract from RTE website. Looks like being drawn away from home might be the best solution as the onus is on the home side to provide a suitable neutral venue if their own country is not an option.

Clubs in next season's European competitions could be forced to forfeit matches if they fail to inform UEFA of travel restrictions in place to curb the spread of Covid-19, according to guidelines issued by European soccer's governing body.

UEFA said it would publish a list of known travel restrictions between countries before each draw is made.

Clubs would then have to inform UEFA of any other unknown restrictions at least 48 hours before the draw, failing which they will be handed a 3-0 defeat.

"If a club fails to inform the UEFA administration two days prior to the relevant draw of any restrictions other than those published by UEFA ... the club will be held responsible ... and the match will be declared to be forfeited by the club in question," the governing body said.

UEFA also said that if a club was drawn against an opponent that was not allowed to travel to the country then it must find a neutral venue for its home fixture. If the home club failed to propose a suitable alternative venue it would have to forfeit the game.

They should just negotiate to pair teams up now instead of all that arsing about - we should play the Welsh crowd, Riga should play Tallinn and so on.

Linfield's coefficient is too low for them to be seeded in QR1.
