Porto-Chelsea can be played at Sánchez-Pizjuán

The Seville lost in Dortmund against Borussia their status as a Champions team this season, but the one played against the Germans and that served as a showcase for an exhibition of Haaland with two goals it may not be the last to be played this year in the Sánchez Pizjuán, since the Nervionense stadium right now has quite a few possibilities to host the Porto-Chelsea of the quarter-final tie.

The restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic make it impossible for flights from the British Isles to land on Portuguese soil right now, which is why the Portuguese team has thought about the alternative of the Sevilla stadium, according to the newspaper ‘As’. On April 7, the Portuguese are to receive the London team at the Estadio do Dragao, but the borders are closed for English travelers and the authorities have made it very clear that they will be inflexible in the face of the virulence of the British strain.

The talks with Sevilla have started although nothing has been concluded. Sánchez Pizjuán meets all the conditions required by UEFA and will also be the final of the Europa League in 2022.

However, it will not be the first time that it hosts a match of the highest continental competition without the presence of Sevilla, since in 1986 it hosted the final of the European Cup that Steaua de Bucharest snatched from Barcelona in the penalty shoot-out and in 1998 it hosted a Real Madrid-Inter due to a penalty from the Santiago Bernabéu.
