Liverpool and RB Leipzig 'likely to return to Budapest' for Champions League last-16 second leg


Back to Budapest! Liverpool and RB Leipzig ‘likely to return to Hungarian capital for Champions League last-16 second leg’ with German side unable to play at Anfield because they would have to quarantine upon their return

Liverpool and RB Leipzig are reportedly set to return to Budapest for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

The Reds and their Bundesliga opponents met on neutral territory in the Hungarian capital last month after Germany’s coronavirus rules prevented Jurgen Klopp’s side from entering the country.

Leipzig have since been informed they would have to enter 10 days of quarantine upon their return to Germany if they were to travel to Merseyside to play the second leg and that led UEFA to consider moving the tie away from Anfield.

Now, according to The Times, the game is likely to be moved to the Puskas Arena in Budapest once again when they meet on March 10.
