Champions League: PSG vs Borussia Dortmund To Hold Behind Closed Doors

Champions League: PSG vs Borussia Dortmund To Hold Behind Closed Doors

The UEFA Champions League clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund would be played behind closed doors due to the threat of the coronavirus, Diamond Hub 101 reports.

The second leg match would be played at the Parc des Princes stadium but the club supporters would not be allowed into the stadium.

This was made known through a statement released by the French police...

In application of the measures announced by the defense council last night, the Prefect of Police decided that the match #PSGBVB will take place behind closed doors.

However, PSG has tried to avoid the decision to play the match behind closed doors and even tried to get a company to conduct a mass disinfection of the entire stadium as they feel there would be no home advantage if their supporters are not present.

Due to the spread of the deadly virus, this has become the second UEFA Champions League match to fall victim to the bug following Valencia’s game with Atalanta.

Valencia will be hosting Atalanta at their Mestalla also behind closed doors. All fixtures in Italy would be played without having supporters on ground in a desperate bid to deal with the deadly virus.

France has suffered more than 1,200 cases of the coronavirus in the country, and has recorded 19 deaths so far.
