UEFA has announced that away goals rule in European club football is to be abolished from the start of next season.

The rule, used since 1965, decided drawn two-legged games by favouring the team that scored the most away goals.

All ties level on aggregate at the end of the second leg will instead go to extra time and potentially penalties.

“It is no longer appropriate for an away goal to carry more weight,” said Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin.

Uefa’s club competitions committee made the proposal in May and it has now been approved by the body’s executive committee.
