RB Leipzig will now host Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League tie in Budapest due to coronavirus restrictions in Germany.
The authorities have banned entry to Germany except for German residents and citizens, which means that Jurgen Klopp would be allowed into the country, but the vast majority of his squad would not be.
The ban is in place until February 17, and it had been suggested that the clubs could play the first leg in Liverpool and switch the second leg to Leipzig, but now the tie will take place at the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach are due to face Manchester City on February 24, which could be affected by an extended ban.
