    Spain play their last league games 19th July. Why can’t Madrid come over and quarantine for 14 days like the cricketers have done ?

    If they all arrive and leave by private jet surely there can be no issue with this as the whole squad is operating within a closed environment. This reeks totally of the crooks at Real Madrid trying to cheat againl. Tebas (a Real Madrid fan) will have his greasy hands all over it as usual. Even with no fans losing home advantage is significant.

    Isn't there going to be an air corridor created between the UK and Spain?

    So for what reasons can the Etihad not host the game?

    .... unsurprisingly, something smell a bit fishy here

    As it stands now its all good and will go ahead at the Etihad as quarantine with Spain relaxed. However the caveat is were a month away still so things can change and potentially we could be back under lockdown in a month with quarantine reinstated. That's the scenario that'd mean the game switches to Lisbon.
    It shows how fast changing things are with this virus that they selected Portugal as it was the least affected of countries at that time and now fast forward a few weeks and everyone is told to avoid it

    They may well be "trying it on" but as long as we can prove that we are adhering to strict measures set out by the Government then the issue shouldn`t occur.
    I assume we have good contacts within the Home Office. ;)

    Haven't UEFA said they need the decision by next week, putting pressure on us. Situation is a movable feast with COVID. What's to say Portugal dont have to go back into lockdown again?

    Very true and this is something that will have been discussed at great lengths.As you say,come the week before the game and England and Portugal are "out of bounds" then a further venue/s will have to be considered.

    There is no "pressure" on us.Its down to the Government to confirm that there should be no issues and the match should go ahead as planned.

    So why do Sky lead with "UEFA conirm that Manchester City will have to play Real Madrid in Portugal....."

    Why not have, UEFA have confirmed Manchester City WILL play their second leg quarter final tie at the Etihad unless..."

    No agenda...?

    I still struggle with the fact that football has been allowed to continue at all, one thing not being mentioned is that if we go through to the final then our final match will be played towards the end of August while the dippers are chilling out withere feet up. Next season will be a long slog for us.
