The Champions League last-16 second leg game between Manchester City and Real Madrid has been plunged into doubt, due to new UK COVID-19 travel restrictions.

According to Diario AS, the UK Government has stated that anyone entering the country from Spain from June 26 onwards, will be required to self-isolate as per public health guidelines, following localised coronavirus flare ups in Northern Spain.

Madrid are due to face City at the Etihad Stadium on August 7.

However, the fixture is now potentially subject to change.

UEFA had initially proposed all last-16 second leg ties be played at neutral venues, ahead of the ‘Final 8′ tournament in Lisbon, Portugal next month.

However, that decision was overturned following a relaxation of rules regarding self isolation for most European nations in June.

UEFA are expected to provide an official update on the situation early next week.
