Vorskla Poltava v Arsenal: Hosts throw doubt on Arsenal game going ahead


Arsenal drew their last Europa League tie 0-0 against Sporting Lisbon

Uefa says it is “working to ensure” Arsenal’s Europa League tie with Vorskla Poltava will take place in Kiev on Thursday.

Uefa moved the game’s location from Poltava to the capital because of the introduction of martial law in several regions in Ukraine.

Earlier on Wednesday Vorskla vice-president Oleg Lisak said there was no guarantee the Ukrainians would play.

But the club later said it accepted the match would be played in Kiev.

The group stage fixture is due to take place at the capital’s Olimpiyskiy Stadium at 17:55 GMT on Thursday.
