UEFA Confirms Venue for Liverpool’s Champions League Clash with Leipzig

 

Liverpool and RB Leipzig will return to Budapest to play their Champions League round-of-16 second leg match, UEFA confirmed on Thursday.

The first leg ended 2-0 in the Reds’ favour.

Liverpool cannot play Leipzig at Anfield because the Bundesliga club players would have to undergo 10 days of isolation upon returning from the UK.

“UEFA is able to officially confirm that the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg match between Liverpool FC and RB Leipzig will now be played at the Puskas Arena in Budapest,” UEFA said in a statement.

The first leg was originally scheduled to be played at the Red Bull Arena in Germany.

It was shifted to Budapest after German authorities denied Liverpool entry into the country due to COVID-19 protocols .
