Manchester City’s Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie away to Borussia Monchengladbach has been moved to Budapest.

The decision has been taken due to travel restrictions on foreign nationals arriving into Germany.

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.’

The move means City will play at the Puskas Arena seven days after Liverpool, whose tie away to RB Leipzig on February 16 has been moved to the same venue for the same reason.

Germany’s travel restrictions are due to remain in place until February 17 but are expected to be extended, leading Borussia Monchengladbach to begin exploring alternative venues.
