Manchester City vs Real Madrid is officially postponed


Manchester City's second leg Champions League game against Real Madrid has been postponed as the Spanish side's players head into quarantine. 

A member of Real Madrid basketball team, who train in the same complex as the football club, has tested positive for coronavirus, forcing the 13-time European Champions to go into isolation.

With the quarantine period lasting two weeks, next week's reverse fixture at the Etihad is now off.

Players were apparently told to leave the training ground on Thursday morning (12 March).

Man City released a statement this afternoon. It reads:

"The decision to postpone Tuesday’s game was made in conjunction with UEFA and follows confirmation that players from Real Madrid will self-isolate for fifteen days, after it emerged that a player from the club’s basketball team tested positive for COVID-19.

"The Club sends it best wishes to the players and staff at Real Madrid’s football and basketball teams.

"Further information regarding the rescheduled date and related ticketing information will follow in due course."
