Video Assistant Referees (VAR) will be used in this season’s Champions League from the last-16 stage, Sky Sports News understands.

The technology was due to be introduced next season, but has been fast-tracked after a series of high-profile refereeing mistakes.

UEFA originally opted against using VAR this season despite it being used by most major European leagues and FIFA at the World Cup in Russia, but hinted earlier this month it could be introduced ahead of schedule.
