This will give the two managers a huge range of options in order to chop and change as required.

Although only three substitutes will be permitted still, unless the game goes to extra time, in which case a fourth may be used.

The rule change was first introduced by UEFA in the Super Cup earlier this season between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

The same rule was implemented in the Europa League final between Arsenal and Chelsea.
