“Following the decisions of the Italian authorities, the UEFA Europa League match between FC Internazionale Milano and PFC Ludogorets Razgrad will be played behind closed doors at the Stadio San Siro in Milan on Thursday 27 February 2020,” it starts.

“All other UEFA matches scheduled this week will go ahead as planned and at this time there are no restrictions for attending supporters.
