The first leg of Tottenham Hotspur’s Europa League tie with Wolfsberger has moved to the Puskas Arena in Budapest.
The Spurs were scheduled for Austria for the first leg of their round of 32 tie on February 18, but those plans were launched into the air after the Austrian government imposed a ban on flights from the UK due to the COVID outbreak. -19. .
Rumors that the match would move to Russia quickly emerged, but Spurs confirmed in their official Web site that the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary, has been chosen to host the game, which will still start at 17:55 (GMT).
Champions League and Europa League matches are recently being relocated left, right and center, and the Puskas Arena has been selected as the new host for some of the games in question.
Leipzig vs. Liverpool was the first match to move to Budapest, and Gladbach vs. Manchester City followed suit soon after.
The other Champions League game that moved was Atlético de Madrid’s home draw with Chelsea, which will now be played at the Arena Nationala in Bucharest, Romania.
As for the Europa League, Manchester United’s trip to Real Sociedad has moved to the Juventus Stadium in Turin, and with them in Italy will be Arsenal, who expected to travel to Benfica but will play at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
The second leg of that Arsenal match has also moved, with the two teams exchanging the Emirates Stadium for the Stadio Georgios Karaiskakis in Piraeus, Greece. Everything is getting a bit complicated to follow now.
Back with Spurs, they must first go through a difficult meeting with Premier League leaders Manchester City before they can even begin to think about Wolfsberger.
The second leg of the round of 32 tie is still scheduled to be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but given the state of affairs at the moment, it would not be a surprise to see it moved to a different corner of the world. .
