According to AP, Vorskla have confirmed that they will face Arsenal in Kiev this evening having been given guarantees that the Olympic Stadium in Kiev is ready to put the game on.
The Ukrainian side suggested last night that they may not partake in the fixture given the logistical challenges faced by supporters who’d bought tickets expecting the match to be played in Poltava.
UEFA decided that the game should be moved after martial law was enforced in certain regions of Ukraine by the government; a response to increased tensions with neighbours Russia.
Unai Emery’s Arsenal landed in Kiev yesterday with the boss hosting a press conference before sneaking a look at the state of the pitch. He was then taken out for a chicken dinner by Oleg Luzhny.
The match will kick off at 17:55pm GMT.
