+++ February 16, 2021: BVB professional Delaney is missing from the departure to Seville +++
Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund started the journey to the first leg of the first leg in the Champions League at Sevilla FC without Thomas Delaney. The Danish midfielder stayed with his heavily pregnant wife on Tuesday morning and should ideally join the game on Wednesday (9 p.m. / DAZN). In contrast, Thomas Meunier, who had recovered from knee problems, was part of the traveling group. Thorgan Hazard, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Roman Bürki are still injured.
+++ February 16, 2021: BVB wants to go back to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2017 +++
Since the German final against FC Bayern in 2013 (1: 2), BVB have made it into the last sixteen of the Champions League six times. But only twice did the last eight teams continue. Unlike in the past two years, when the Revierclub was eliminated in the round of 16 against a later finalist (2020: Paris / 2019: Tottenham), this time an end in the first knockout round should be averted in the two duels with Sevilla FC.

Referee: Slavko Vincic (Slovenia)
+++ 02.15.2021: Champions League: RB Leipzig is aiming for a home win in Budapest +++
RB Leipzig wants to take the first step towards the quarter-finals of the Champions League in Budapest. The Saxons will play their round of 16 first leg against Liverpool on Tuesday (9 p.m. / DAZN) in the Hungarian capital due to the German Corona restrictions. Although the English soccer champions, who were trained by Jürgen Klopp, recently suffered three defeats in a row, RB coach Julian Nagelsmann does not see Leipzig as a favorite. “It will depend on the form of the day. We need a top day to be on par,” said the 33-year-old. Playmaker Emil Forsberg is still suffering from knee problems and did not make the trip to Budapest.
+++ 02/11/2021: Neymar is out of the Champions League game against Barcelona +++
Football star Neymar is not available to French champions Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday in the first leg of the Champions League first leg against his ex-club FC Barcelona due to an adductor injury. The Brazil will be out for around four weeks, PSG announced on Thursday in Paris.
Neymar was injured again in PSG’s cup game on Wednesday evening. The attacker was substituted in the 54th minute of the defending champion’s 1-0 win against second division SM Caen. Most recently, Neymar was absent due to an ankle injury.
For the 29-year-old, the curse of the round of 16 at PSG continues. In the 2017/18 season, Neymar suffered a metatarsal fracture before the Champions League second leg against eventual winners Real Madrid and was then out for months. A year later, the exceptional player suffered a similar injury and was not available to PSG in the last 16 duels with Manchester United. Paris ended up unhappy. Only last year was Neymar able to play in the first knockout round against Borussia Dortmund (1: 2 and 2: 0) and with two goals was the decisive player in advancing.
+++ 02/08/2021: Champions League: Gladbach plays against Manchester in Budapest +++
Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach will play their round of 16 first leg in the Champions League on February 24 against Manchester City in Budapest. Borussia announced this on Monday. The reason for the postponement of the home game is the entry ban from high-risk countries in which the coronavirus has mutated, which will apply until at least February 17th.
+++ 05.02.2021: Klopp on entry ban: exception would be “absolutely appropriate” +++
Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp reacted with a certain lack of understanding to his team’s entry ban in Germany. “I think it would be absolutely appropriate to make an exception,” said Klopp on Friday, when asked about the Champions League away game of the English soccer champions at RB Leipzig on February 16. Among other things, he referred to the measures that Liverpool are taking to protect the team from the corona virus. “We are really in a bubble and we could play against Leipzig without spreading the virus,” said the 53-year-old.
Due to the current corona restrictions, which initially apply until February 17, the federal police rejected an application for a special permit for Liverpool FC on Thursday. RB has to present a solution to UEFA by Monday, otherwise the game will be rated 3-0 for Liverpool.
“We’ll find out where we play the game. It’s not our decision,” said Klopp. “Nobody from Germany called me and asked me how the situation is in England.” Klopp also said: “It is how it is is: the rules are the rules and we will accept them. “
+++ 02/04/2021: Application rejected: Liverpool is not allowed to enter the Leipzig game +++
The round of 16 first leg of the Champions League between RB Leipzig and Liverpool FC cannot be played in Leipzig on February 16 due to the current Corona restrictions. The federal police rejected an application for a special permit for the entry of the English soccer team, as a spokeswoman for the Federal Ministry of the Interior of the German press agency announced on Thursday. The “Bild” newspaper had previously reported on it.
