The second leg of Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League last-16 encounter with Borussia Dortmund is to be played behind closed doors as the spread of coronavirus continues to impact top-level sport.
Games around the world have been affected by a global health scare.
Serie A has been the hardest hit over recent weeks, with there still a very real threat that the 2019-20 campaign in Italy could be shut down and cut short.
Fixtures did go ahead over the weekend, but fans were prevented from attending, with that a regular occurrence in contests involving Italian sides.
It is not just domestic action which has seen supporters locked out, though, with European competition putting containment measures in place.
Tuesday’s clash between Valencia and Atalanta at Mestalla will be played behind closed doors.
And now similar action is now being taken when it comes to PSG’s meeting with Dortmund on Wednesday.
