The reintroduction of Spain among the countries to which the United Kingdom forces a quarantine does not change UEFA's plans regarding the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 that will face City with Real Madrid. The European body maintains the Etihad Stadium in Manchester as the venue for the meeting , scheduled for August 7.

The obligation of a 14-day isolation to travelers arriving to British lands from Spanish territories also brings various exemptions. Elite athletes can benefit from some of them.

The British government's Secretary of Culture, Oliver Dowden , already announced earlier this July that there would be some sports that could get rid of the travel restrictions imposed by the pandemic. Among the events in question, in addition to the Champions League, are Formula One (both the GP of Great Britain on August 2 and the 70th Anniversary, also at Silverstone, on August 9) and international cricket matches.

The UEFA, without mediating a change of opinion on the part of the Executive of Boris Johnson , continues thus with the established script. So Real Madrid, which fell in the first leg against Pep Guardiola's City (1-2) played at the Santiago Bernabéu on February 26, will have to try to lift the tie in Manchester -like the other duels , behind closed doors-, and not in alternative venues that were considered at the time, such as Porto or Guimaraes. The final to eight will be played exclusively in Lisbon.
