Dnipro v Tottenham: Ukraine unrest will not cause Europa League match to be postponed
The sides meet in the first leg of their last-32 tie on Thursday
Tottenham's Europa League match against Dnipro will not be postponed, despite the volatile sitation in Ukraine.
There have been clashes between police and anti-government supporters in the capital Kiev overnight with the death toll rising to 25.

The memo read: “Following current political situation in Ukraine we advise you to pay close attention to your personal security, monitor the media for information about possible safety or security risks, avoid demonstrations and public gatherings, as even peaceful protests may turn violent.”
Tottenham have also been offering advice and warned supporters to be vigilant.

While the kick-off time remains the same (1900 local time), the tie will take place at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia, Cyprus, Valencia president Amadeo Salvo announced on his club's official website.
