Real Madrid will face Manchester City in England in England, the normal venue as stipulated in the Champions League. The match will be back and the result is 1-2 in favor of the citizens, who won on their trip to Spain before the pandamia.
Now, Uefa has scheduled the second leg for this August 7 and, so far, everything remains firm to play on that day and meet the team that advances to the quarterfinals.
However, there are several problems that have surrounded this match, mainly Real Madrid, and that would have the commitment in suspense. Will it finally be played?
The first of these is the mandatory quarantine and isolation that England decreed. The United Kingdom will isolate for 14 days all travelers arriving in the country from Spain. The first reason why the commitment is in jeopardy, since this time of isolation is not being reached.
There, comes the second reason and explanation of England’s decision. In Spain, after leaving quarantine, the use of face masks was not mandatory and there were already common places (bars and others) open. In recent days there has been a significant spike in the number of infections, as only on July 27 there were 905 new cases.
Finally, to this, we add the positive contagion for covid-19 that Mariano had, a Real Madrid player. Although it is said that the footballer was away from his teammates and there was no possible way of contagion, this issue could also give problems for commitment.
