UEFA votes to SCRAP away goals entirely from European competitions

UEFA has voted to scrap away goals from all European club competitions with immediate effect

The rule, which was introduced in 1965, has since been used to determine the winner of a two-legged knockout tie where teams had scored the same number of goals on aggregate over the two matches.

Now in matches where two teams score the same number of goals over two legs, games will go straight to extra time and then penalties, if they are required.
