Atletico Madrid’s Champions League Clash with Chelsea Moved to Romania

Liverpool, PSG, Porto & Dortmund Qualifies For Champion's League Quarter Finals

Atletico Madrid’s home leg with Chelsea in the Champions League last-16 has been moved to Romania due to coronavirus restrictions.

The Spanish government has put a ban on arrivals from the United Kingdom without quarantine, due to concerns about new variants of COVID-19.

For the match to go ahead, a neutral venue needed to be found, with Bucharest’s Arena Nationala stepping up to host it on Tuesday the 23rd of February 2021.

The second leg will still take place at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday the 17th of March.

It’s the latest switch of venue involving English teams playing in Europe with Liverpool and Manchester City set to play their away Champions League ties with Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach respectively in Budapest, because of similar restrictions placed on the UK by Germany.
