UEFA could scrap the away goals rule in a major shake-up to the Champions League.
The governing body has listened to advise from managers including Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, who has been vocal in his criticism.
And Kicker claims their executive committee will discuss making the change when they meet in Rome today.
In the 1960s, home advantage was more of a significant factor with longer travel times and non-standardised balls.
And footie chiefs responded by introducing the concept of a two-legged tie being settled by which team scored the most away goals in 1965.
But the policy is seen as out of date in today’s era, with advances in technology and governance levelling the playing field.
In September, a number of top coaches – including Wenger, Mourinho, Unai Emery, Max Allegri, Carlo Ancelotti, Paulo Fonseca, Julen Lopetegui and Thomas Tuchel – met to discuss away goals.
And following the chat, Uefa competition director Giorgio Marchetti said: “They think that achieving away goals is not as difficult as in the past.

“So they think the rule should be reviewed and that’s what we will do.”
Any changes are unlikely to be confirmed this afternoon, with European competitions returning next week.
