The first leg of Inter’s Champions League round of sixteen tie against Liverpool could be moved from the San Siro to a neutral venue.
This according to today’s print edition of UK tabloid the Daily Mail, who report that UEFA could move the match due to fallout from Italy’s policy of mandatory vaccinations for footballers.
Italy and France are among the countries to have instituted policies requiring that all professional footballers receive vaccinations for footballers.
This could have ramifications for Inter’s knockout tie against Liverpool, as well as for French side Lille’s matchup with Chelsea, should the English side be without players who do not meet the countries’ requirements for vaccination.
There are not currently any serious talks with UEFA to move the match outside of Italy, but in the event that the problems with the policy leave the Reds without the minimum thirteen available players for the match, they could be forced to do so, according to the Daily Mail.
