UEFA will not introduce Video Assistant Referees (VAR) for next season’s Champions League because of ongoing “confusion” surrounding its use, Aleksander Ceferin, the president of European football’s governing body, said on Monday.

“Nobody knows exactly how it works yet. There is still a lot of confusion,” Ceferin said at UEFA’s Congress in the Slovakian capital Bratislava as he confirmed it would not be introduced for next season’s Champions League.

VAR has been used this season in various club competitions, including the German Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A.

It looks set to be used at the World Cup in Russia in June and July, with the International Football Association Board (IFAB) set to confirm that decision on March 3.

The Reds squandered another of missed opportunities as they attempted to overturn the 3-1 deficit from the first leg in Madrid but again their attack was blunted with the score ending the same as when Los Blancos beat them in the Champions League final in 2018.

Out of all of the cups and the title race, Liverpool only have getting into the top four again to play for in what has been a disappointing season given the heights of last year.

Elsewhere, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden scored as Manchester City came from behind to defeat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in Wednesday’s second leg and book a blockbuster Champions League semi-final clash with Paris Saint-Germain.
