Responding to footage of crowds gathering outside Parc des Princes regardless of the coronavirus outbreak, as relayed by the Athletic journalist Phil Hay on Twitter, many Leeds fans have been in full discussion over the perceived lockdown on fans in stadiums – which could impact Elland Road depending on actions taken.
During Paris-Saint Germain’s 2-0 Champions League home win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night, many supporters gathered outside the stadium due to the fact it was played behind closed doors as a precaution to stop the spread of coronavirus.
According to a report from Leeds Live, the impact of the disease in the UK could lead to Premier League matches and EFL games being played without fans in the stadium. However, as relayed by Hay, it appears that precaution did not work – with many supporters seemingly gathering in large numbers regardless.
As a result, many Leeds fans have debated whether an empty stadium at Elland Road would have the same impact. Find all of their best comments down below.
Imagine this outside Elland Road Phil 😂

Be same outside a lot of grounds in England if they stop fans in grounds imo people will just go stand outside it

Stupidity knows no limit. Won’t be many more games played for a while!

This obviously demonstrates playing behind closed doors doesn’t work I fear the worst in coming

Surely this is more dangerous that allowing people to attend?

Playing behind closed doors didn’t stop fans congregating? Who’ve guessed?
