Man City's second leg with Monchengladbach to remain at Etihad Stadium

The situation is different from that affecting the second leg of the tie between Liverpool and another German side in Leipzig, which is due to be played at Anfield on March 10.

Those two clubs also played their first leg at the Puskas Arena in the Hungarian capital on February 16.

There are different regional restrictions affecting Leipzig, in the state of Saxony, to Monchengladbach in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Under current quarantine rules, Leipzig would have to isolate for 10 days on their return home if they play in England.

The regulations are due to be reviewed this week but if they are not relaxed, the game may be switched to a neutral location. Reports have suggested Budapest is again under consideration but no decision has yet been made.

Liverpool will take a 2-0 lead into the second leg.
