UEFA have announced that the Champions League last-16 game between Atletico Madrid and Chelsea, will now be played in Bucharest, Romania.
This comes after the Spanish Government extended restrictions on the arrival of flights from the UK beyond the game’s matchday on February 23.
The decision also saw Manchester United’s Europa League away leg at Real Sociedad switched from San Sebastian to Turin on Tuesday.
“Our club has agreed to the change of venue – date and time remained unchanged – with UEFA.
“Given the impossibility for the English team to travel to Spain, Atletico Madrid has been looking for alternatives during the last few days, taking into account factors such as access to the country, availability of facilities, stadiums and the situation of the pandemic,” Atletico Madrid said in a statement.
Bucharest’s National Arena was the stadium where Diego Simeone won his first trophy in charge of Atletico – a 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in the 2012 Europa League final.
