Champions League: UEFA announce new venue for Borussia Monchengladbach vs Man City
UEFA has confirmed that the first leg of the Champions League round-of-16 tie between Borussia Monchengladbach and Manchester City, has been moved from Germany to Budapest due to COVID-19 protocols.
The match will still be played on February 24.
“UEFA would like to thank Borussia VfL 1900 Monchengladbach and Manchester City FC for their close cooperation and support, as well as the Hungarian Football Federation for their assistance and agreeing to host the match in question,” an official statement read.
Liverpool’s Champions League tie against RB Leipzig next week has also been moved from Germany to Budapest.
This comes after German authorities refused to give Liverpool an exemption from restrictions limiting travel from the UK, where an aggressive variant of COVID-19 is spreading.
