The match between Bayern Munich and Barcelona to be played on December 8 for the Champions League will be played without an audience due to the increase in cases of coronavirus in Germany, local authorities confirmed on Tuesday.
In that sense, the Prime Minister of Bavaria, Markus Soder, said that the decision is that “fans do not enter the stadiums due to the bad situation of contagion by Covid that Germany suffers” and explained that “it is very important to decide today in a way unitary for the whole country that does not admit spectators.
“Soccer has an important role as an example. Right now we have to reduce contacts everywhere, “wrote Soder on his Twitter social network account, according to the newspaper Mundo Deportivo in Spain.
The measure will be in effect 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.
