Liverpool's Champions League clash against FC Midtjylland to be held in Denmark

Liverpool's Champions League away game against FC Midtjylland will be held in Denmark after the easing of UK travel restrictions allows for the Premier League champions to travel to Herning.

The Reds are due to travel to Scandinavia next month for the Group D clash, and there had been fears that Jurgen Klopp's side would have to self-isolate upon their return, in line with the rules set out by the UK government.

These protocols have typically been waived for elite sportsmen and sportswomen since the return of competitions, however Denmark would not be afforded such exemption, casting doubt over the fixture.

However, the Danish side have confirmed that the game will be played at their home ground.

"The English authorities have eased travel restrictions, which is why our Champions League clash against Liverpool FC will take place in Herning as planned," FCM said on their official website.

The new rules now allow for elite athletes to travel to Denmark without having to undergo a period of self isolation as previously required.
