The Times reported on Tuesday that Leipzig would have to go to quarantine after arriving to the United Kingdom under the pandemic regulations. Therefore, the UEFA is looking for another solution in consultation with the teams. The Dutch Feyenoord and Italian Udinese's stadium were in consideration, but the match is likely to be played in Budapest again.
As known, the first leg was played in the Puskás Aréna, chosen by Leipzig, due to the travel ban from England to Germany. After Liverpool's two-goal victory, the English club's press agent noted that they would definitely be back in three weeks' time. Both manager Jürgen Klopp and head coach Julian Nagelsmann also commented positively on the circumstances.
The second leg will be on March 10 at 9pm.
