PSG vs Borussia Dortmund to take place behind closed doors

The Champions League clash between Paris Saint Germain and Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday will take place behind closed doors due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak, said the Paris police authority on Monday. 

The game at Paris’ Parc des Princes stadium will see PSG go into the second-leg having lost the first tie in Dortmund 2-1. 

Barcelona and Napoli also face playing in an empty stadium as their last-16 second leg at the Nou Camp next week is under threat.

There were fears the PSG tie, at the Parc des Princes, would be postponed at this late stage as French government have placed a ban on gatherings of more than 1,000 people. 

But Paris police confirmed it will go ahead at the 48,000-capacity stadium. Thomas Tuchel's side head into the tie trailing 2-1 from the first leg in Germany.

Parc des Princes has been disinfected but the government's ban following an emergency security meeting meant there was no choice but to take action. 

Barcelona do not host Napoli until next Wednesday but there are doubts surrounding the fixture too. The tie is all square at 1-1 after the first leg in southern Italy.
