Leipzig - Liverpool clash to be re-scheduled?

First leg of RB Leipzig - Liverpool clash set to be re-scheduled or relocated

February 4, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
Twelve days away from the game, Jurgen Klopp and his men are yet to know where they will play the first leg of their Round of 16 tie against the German side.

Just when Liverpool's season couldn't be any more complicated, now the Reds will have to face a logistics nightmare when it comes to playing their UEFA Champions League tie against RB Leipzig.

As you may already know, the coronavirus pandemic has caused all sorts of changes in domestic and international tournaments. This time, the measures taken by the German government could force the Reds to play the first leg of their Round of 16 tie against RB Leipzig at a neutral venue or to see the game being postponed.

Earlier today, German officers revealed that local authorities will not bend their rules to host Liverpool in the game set to take place on February 16. Local rules state that there will be no foreigners admitted into the country if they come from a place where a new type of coronavirus string has emerged, which is the case in the U.K.. With that in mind, Liverpool's hopes of local authorities making an exception to help them play the game have gone out the window.

Now, UEFA will have to decide where, when, and how the game will be played, since the European football calendar is currently in a tight spot due to all the competitions that are taking place, and having to postpone a game will really cause some issues for football's governing body in Europe. Nevertheless, the decision by German authorities makes sense, since the pandemic is far from being controlled and health issues are more relevant than a simple football game.
