Chelsea and Porto will play both legs in the quarterfinals of the Champions League in neutral Spain due to travel restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.

UEFA said on Tuesday that the Ramon Sanchez-Pizuan stadium in Seville would host the matches on April 7th and 13th. The venue is home to Sevilla and hosts Champions League matches earlier this season.

Porto is technically the host of the first match. UEFA has previously stated that the guest rule will apply even when matches are played in neutral venues.

Due to travel restrictions between England and Portugal, Arsenal and Benfica were previously forced to play in Rome and Athens when they met in the Europa League.
