It was unspoken but we knew it was going to happen, we all did. Man City's Champions League clash against Real Madrid has now been officially called off.
Madrid are in quarantine after one of their basketball players was diagnosed with coronavirus.
"Manchester City’s UEFA Champions League fixture at home to Real Madrid has been postponed," said City.
"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 its 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."
UEFA confirmed the news.
"Following the quarantine imposed on players of Juventus and Real Madrid, the following #UCL matches will not take place as scheduled.
Manchester City – Real Madrid
Juventus – Olympique Lyonnais
Further decisions on the matches will be communicated in due course."
