Suara.com – Several games of the last 32 of the European League, which involved Arsenal and Tottenham Hostpur, had to move locations. This is due to the COVID-19 regulations which make travel to and from opposing countries impossible.
Arsenal’s two-legged match against Benfica has been moved to neutral due to travel restrictions in England related to arrivals from Portugal.
The first leg, which will be played at the Estadio Da Luz on February 18, has been moved to Rome while the second leg will be played in Athens at the Olympiacos Piraeus stadium a week later.
Arsenal’s home game on February 25 was moved because Portugal was on England’s ‘red list’, meaning those arriving from the country had to self-isolate for 10 days, with no exception for elite athletes.
