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.
Tottenham's game will take place in Dnipropetrovsk, which is 220 miles south-east of Kiev.
Earlier a spokesman for Uefa said European football's governing body were "monitoring the situation closely" but later confirmed that they expected the match to go ahead.
Tottenham flew out as scheduled this morning, however fans have been urged to be wary if they are travelling to Ukraine.
On its website yesterday, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office published travel advice for those Tottenham fans planning to follow their team to the game.
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.
Spurs said: “We are aware that a number of our fans will travel to Dnipropetrovsk via Kiev and you should take extra care when in public areas and if travelling by train, keep all your belongings together and in sight at all times.”
Meanwhile, the game between Dynamo Kiev and Valencia has been switched to a neutral stadium because of the ongoing trouble.
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.
