Hapoel-Athletic rescheduled

The Europa League match between Hapoel Kiryat Shmona and Athletic Bilbao, which was postponed this week due to security concerns in Israel, has been rescheduled for next Wednesday, UEFA has announced.

The Group I clash was due to take place in Haifa on Thursday but was called off by UEFA on Wednesday after the Spanish side reportedly expressed their concerns in making the trip to the troubled region.

A bomb went off near Israel's military headquarters in Tel Aviv on Wednesday morning, wounding at least 10 people. Athletic were due to land in the city that afternoon before commuting to nearby Haifa, where the match was to take place.

A UEFA statement released on Friday read: "The Europa League matchday five game between Hapoel Kiryat Shmona and Athletic Club in Israel will take place at 21.05CET next Wednesday.

"The Group I fixture was postponed this week due to the tense security situation in the region. The game will go ahead at the Itztadion Kiryat Eliezer in Haifa on Wednesday, 28 November.''

Thursday night's 1-1 draw between Lyon and Sparta Prague, the top two sides in Group I, means that neither Hapoel nor Athletic can now qualify for the knockout round of the competition.
