UCL: PSG Vs Dortmund Takes Place Behind Closed-Door Over Coronavirus Outbreak

Paris Saint-Germain UEFA Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund is set to be played behind closed doors due to the ongoing threat of the coronavirus.

The second leg of the last-16 tie is due to be played at the Parc des Princes stadium, but the decision has been made to ban fans from attending.

It becomes the second European tie to fall victim to coronavirus following Valencia’s meeting with Atalanta.

Valencia will also host the Serie A outfit at their Mestalla stadium behind closed doors, with all sporting fixtures in Italy currently banning supporters in a desperate bid to deal with the deadly bug.

Dortmund meanwhile lead the tie against PSG 2-1 on aggregate.

This arguably hands Thomas Tuchel a disadvantage in the return fixture against his former side when line-up without the presence of a home crowd.

PSG had been desperate to avoid the decision to have the game played behind closed doors, even outsourcing a company to conduct a mass disinfection of the entire stadium.

Another internal discussion had been to open the gates to the Parc des Princes earlier to prevent large clusters of fans gathering together.

However, French Health Minister Olivier Veran made such a move impossible after banning gatherings of more than 1,000 people during an emergency meeting with President Emmanuel Macron.

France itself has suffered more than 1,200 cases of the virus in the country, with 19 deaths.

French police issued a statement which read: “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.”
