Sevilla-Roma to be played behind closed doors

Spanish outlet ABC de Sevilla has reported that this Thursday’s Europa League match between hosts Sevilla and Roma will be played behind closed doors.

Reportedly, the Spanish outfit decided today to play the clash without fans upon recommendation of Spain’s Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, who will give a press conference shortly regarding the measures being taken by Spanish authorities to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

It has already been announced that the second leg of the match-up in Rome on 19 March will be played behind closed doors due to the outbreak of the virus in Italy.
