Liverpool’s Champions League last-16 second leg against RB Leipzig has been switched from Anfield to the Puskas Arena in Budapest, UEFA has announced.
Last month’s first leg, which Liverpool won 2-0 through second-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, was also held in the Hungarian capital due to coronavirus restrictions affecting travel between Germany and England.
The Puskas Arena will again be the venue for the return fixture between the sides on March 10, with Jurgen Klopp’s men the designated home team.
“UEFA can confirm that the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg between Liverpool and Leipzig will now be played at the Puskas Arena in Budapest,” read a statement on the governing body’s website on Thursday.
“The date of the match (Wednesday 10 March) and the kick-off time (21:00 CET) will remain the same.
