The away goals rule will be scrapped from all UEFA club competitions from the start of the 2021-22 season, the governing body has confirmed.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin revealed the decision was not unanimous, but admitted there was a preference to change the rule after its "fairness" was questioned
"The away goals rule has been an intrinsic part of UEFA competitions since it was introduced in 1965," Ceferin said.
"However, the question of its abolition has been debated at various UEFA meetings over the last few years. Although there was no unanimity of views, many coaches, fans and other football stakeholders have questioned its fairness and have expressed a preference for the rule to be abolished."
