RB Leipzig – Bayern Munich: The possibly decisive game in the Bundesliga title fight could be postponed. Saxony’s Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer only wants to decide in the coming days whether the game can take place.
The hosting of the top game in the Bundesliga between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich is questionable. Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU) did not want to commit on Tuesday whether the game could be played on April 3 as planned.
“The next few days will show whether that is the case,” said Kretschmer. The background to this are the days of rest decided by the Prime Minister’s Conference over Easter from April 1st to 5th. The federal government is currently working on an ordinance to clarify issues such as professional football over Easter.
At the same time, Leipzig can hope to even let spectators into the stadium if the game takes place. One day after the rejection by the Mayor of Leipzig Burkhard Jung (SPD), the state government announced a change to the Corona regulation on model tests. These projects will be decoupled from the incidence and could start from Thursday. RB has applied for a pilot project to allow 1,000 fans who tested negative into the stadium for the game.

“That was an important concern for us, in order to show how openings can also be possible under pandemic conditions. With a very clear and unambiguous test regime. That is why we are changing the current Corona Protection Ordinance in one point. That means that we there have deleted the incidence dependency of 100, “said Saxony’s Minister of Health Petra Köpping (SPD) on Tuesday.
On Monday, Leipzig’s Lord Mayor Jung classified events with spectators as illusory, but assumed a link to a seven-day incidence of 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants.
