Manchester City's Champions League clash with Real Madrid next month is set to go ahead as planned despite reimposed quarantine rules on travellers from Spain.
The British Government removed Spain from its list of safe countries on Saturday meaning arrivals from there into the UK must now isolate for 14 days.
However, selected sporting events were recently granted separate exemptions from Covid-19 related quarantine measures - including City's Champions League last-16 second leg - and the PA news agency understands that has not changed.
City and UEFA are continuing to plan for the game to be played at the Etihad Stadium on August 7, although the European governing body has always reserved the right to move venues.
Quarantine exemptions announced by Government on July 5 were for people "essential to staging events", including the sports stars, event officials, coaches, medics, mechanics and incoming members of the media.
In return governing bodies and event organisers must observe "stringent protocols" with exempted individuals remaining in "controlled 'bubbled' environments behind closed doors".
This would also allow events such as the two planned Formula One grands prix at Silverstone and the snooker World Championships to go ahead.
City will carry a 2-1 aggregate lead into the rearranged clash with Real after victory in the Bernabeu in February.
It is the age of data, and yet it is also the age of impatience. It is an age in which Match of the Day provides the xG and yet a manager can come under pressure after three defeats. It is the age in which everybody understands the phrase "regression to the mean", yet it is also an age in which mayflies have begun using 'Watford head coach' to denote something with a short lifespan. There is something deeply paradoxical about the present era of football.
