"UEFA can officially confirm that the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second-leg match between Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach will now be played at the Puskas Arena in Budapest," the governing body said in a statement.

"UEFA would like to thank Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach for their support and close cooperation, as well as the Hungarian Football Federation for their assistance and agreeing to stage the match."
