Europa League: Venue for Arsenal, Benfica return leg changed

Arsenal’s home tie against Benfica in the Europa League on February 25 has been switched to Greece because of Coronavirus restrictions in England, UEFA confirmed on Friday.

The game will now be played at the Georgios Karaiskakis stadium of Olympiakos at 1655 GMT.

The first leg of the last 32 tie on February 18 has already been switched from Lisbon to the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

This decisions became necessary after the UK government toughened restrictions and ruled that only essential travel to and from Portugal would be permitted, and suspended flights between the countries.

The tie is one of several upcoming European clashes to have been impacted by the travel restrictions.
