The match between Bayern Munich and Barcelona, for the Champions League, will be played behind closed doors, as confirmed by the German authorities, after the restrictions due to Covid infections
The Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga will return to games behind closed doors, due to the restrictions derived from the fourth wave of Covid-19.
The measure will be in force at least until the end of the year, a period in which Bayern Munich have two Bundesliga games to play at home and the Champions League second leg against Barcelona.
The Bavarian Prime Minister, Markus Söder, defended the measure, noting that the high mobility involved in the arrival and departure of fans from the stadiums is not justifiable.
“Soccer has an important role as an example. Right now we have to reduce contacts everywhere,” wrote Söder on his Twitter account. Last weekend, strong restrictions began to be imposed in some eastern regions of the country with a high incidence of infections.
Bavaria has already put drastic restrictions on his public life.
