Man City to join Liverpool in playing Champions League clash in Hungary due to travel restrictions in Germany

Man City will join Liverpool in playing their away Champions League tie in Budapest due to travel restrictions imposed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
City had been due to face Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany on February 24 but they will instead travel to the Hungarian capital for their round-of-16 first-leg match.

Liverpool are due to play RB Leipzig at the same Puskas Arena eight days earlier.
A ban on foreign nationals arriving into Germany is due to expire on February 17, a day after Liverpool’s match, but the restrictions are expected to be extended, leading Gladbach to seek alternatives for their own fixture.
A UEFA statement said: “UEFA can confirm that the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 first-leg match between Borussia VfL 1900 Monchengladbach and Manchester City FC will now take place at the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

“The date of the match (24 February 2021) and kick-off time (21:00CET) will remain the same.
“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.”
Leipzig are due at Anfield for their return leg on March 10, while Gladbach are scheduled to travel to the Etihad Stadium on March 16.
