RB Leipzig v Liverpool Champions League clash is suspected as Germany bans travel to the UK – Soccer Sports

Liverpool The German government is facing a Champions League headache after banning all flights from the UK until February 17th to stop the COVID-19 epidemic in Germany.

Premier League champions are set to face RB Leipzig Held in Germany on February 16th, you may need to find another solution.

Playing a game in a neutral venue is one possibility open to the side, or exchanging the venue for the first and second legs.

That means Leipzig will travel to Liverpool for the first leg on February 16th and Jurgen Klopp’s side will play in Germany on March 10th.

German passport holders and residents can travel to Germany and take the test immediately, allowing Leipzig to travel to Anfield and return to the first leg.

The ban was implemented by the German government to contain the spread of new variants of the coronavirus from high-risk countries.

COVID-19 has already been forced to postpone some Premier League matches this season. But they happened because of the outbreak in the club, not the travel ban.

German football is largely unaffected by the COVID-19 pandemic during the 2020-21 campaign. The Bundesliga match has not been postponed so far, although some prominent players have tested positive.
