Liverpool are likely to lose their home advantage for the their UEFA Champions League last-16 second leg tie due to strict Covid-19 rules in Germany.

Should Leipzig travel to Liverpool they will need to quarantine for upon their arrival to German, thus affecting their playing schedule in the Bundesliga report the Daily Mail.

The two teams already played in a neutral ground for the first leg of the tie due to Liverpool not being allowed to enter Germany due to a travel ban on flights entering the country from the UK.

Instead the game was held at the Puskas Arena in Budapest where Liverpool claimed a 2-0 away victory giving them the advantage heading into the second leg.

According to The Times, the game is now likely to be moved to the Puskas Arena in Budapest once again where the two sides are scheduled to meet on March 10th.

The German government are due to review their current travel restrictions this Friday and the rules would need to be relaxed for an Anfield tie to have any chance of happening.
