As Covid-19 restrictions are increasing in the german country, The Reds’ boss team is barred to travel to the RED BULL ARENA to play their first leg of the European Champions League round of 16 as the covid 19 guidelines won’t permit that to happen because of which the match will now be held at Puskas Arena in Budapest. The date and the time of the match will remain the same i.e 16th februray 2021 at 21:00 CET.
However, UK government doesn’t have any such restrictions so that means the second leg’s venue would remain the same i.e Anfield.
