UEFA have released the following statement regarding Manchester City’s UEFA Champions League last 16 first leg tie against Borussia Monchengladbach.

“UEFA can confirm that the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg match between Borussia VfL 1900 Mönchengladbach and Manchester City FC will now take place at the Puskás Aréna in Budapest.

“The date of the match (24 February 2021) and kick-off time (21:00CET) will remain the same.”

This comes after the strict restrictions in Germany that will not allow Gladbach to host the match. City will now get a neutral field and then a home match in the round of 16 matchup.
