The second leg of the round of 16 between Man City and Real Madrid is scheduled for August 7. After a 2-1 win in February, Man City will have home advantage in the second match. The clash will happen at the team’s stadium in the UK.

UK Restricts Travellers From Spain

Spain was added to the list of unsafe countries on Saturday, which means that a 14-quarantine period must be imposed on anyone coming from the country. The decision was made because of the recent spike in new cases in Spain.

Will It Affect the Round of 16 Matches?

The holidaymakers are appalled by the decision as they were not warned about it beforehand, and it seems like most industries were not notified either.

But the Champions League matches will resume as planned due to the July 5th exemptions. All major sporting events will be held as planned.

All essential personnel will need to adhere to strict safety protocols, but as long as the events are conducted in isolated ‘bubbles’ and behind closed doors, there won’t be any restrictions on which countries the players or personnel can travel from.


Despite the ever-increasing complications of the COVID-19 situation, governments find a way to be flexible about their safety policies. They have become nuanced: accounting for different scenarios, including, thankfully, all major sporting events.

The match between Man City and Real Madrid will take place at the Etihad Stadium as initially planned. Because the event would have happened behind closed doors anyway, the new restrictions barely affect it.
