Liverpool have been denied entry into Germany for their Champions League game against Leipzig and the hosts will now have to find another venue for the encounter.
Jurgen Klopp and his wards are expected to face the German club in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 on February 16.
But due to the trouble of COVID-19 and ban on travelling, Liverpool will not be facing Leipzig in Germany and London could be the new venue for the Champions League clash.
According to the report on Sportbible, Leipzig chiefs must find another venue for their tie against Liverpool as soon as possible and they must be ready to cover the costs.
Should London be picked as the venue for this encounter, then Liverpool are expected to have the upper hands against their opponents considering the fact that they are the champions of England.
Last two seasons, Liverpool won the Champions League title beating fellow Premier League rivals Tottenham in the final, but last term, Jurgen Klopp and his men did not do well in the competition.
They are also occupying fourth position on the Premier League table with 40 points after 22 games played so far this season.
Meanwhile, Liverpool will be facing Manchester City in their next Premier League game on Sunday, February 7, which will be a tough tie.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Scottish professional footballer Andrew Robertson who currently plays for reigning Premier League champions Liverpool has admitted that the Reds are not in the title race.
This stunning admission by the defender is coming hours after the English champions suffered a home defeat against Brighton on Wednesday night, February 3.
Steven Alzate’s second-half goal gave the visitors their first win over Liverpool in 39 years thereby pilling serious pressure on the Reds’ boss, Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool have not been impressive this term in the Premier League and the Reds have even lost two games at home ahead of their big battle against Manchester City.
Robertson stated clearly that he and his teammates need to start getting good results going forward this term in the Premier League.
