This is the Real deal as City can host second leg
UEFA has given the green light for Manchester City’s Champions League last-16, second-leg tie with Real Madrid to be played behind closed doors at the Etihad next month.
The governing body has decided all remaining second-leg Champions League and Europa League matches will be played at the home team’s stadium. Pep Guardiola’s side will be relieved, with Uefa’s decision meaning City can step out on home turf having beaten Real Madrid 2-1 in February’s first leg at the Bernabeu.
Wolves will be able to host the return leg of their Europa League last16 encounter with Olympiakos after drawing 1-1 in Greece, while Manchester United can wrap up progress at Old Trafford after romping to a 5-0 triumph against LASK in Austria.
Chelsea will go to Bayern Munich to try to overturn a 3-0 home defeat in the Champions League. Rangers also head to Germany to face Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League – the Scots trail 3-1 from the first leg.
