Teams taking part in all of this week's UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches will observe a minute's silence, to pay respect to the victims of last week's air disaster involving the Chapecoense team and accompanying delegation.

The Brazilian club lost most of their players and coaching staff in the accident, which occurred in Colombia, where Chapecoense were due to play the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final against Atlético Nacional.

"European football is united in expressing its deepest sympathy to Chapecoense, the Brazilian Football Confederation [CBF], CONMEBOL and the families of all the victims following last week's air disaster," said UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin.

"This tragedy has shaken the world of football, and we would like to send our support to all of those affected by it."
