Roma "not to travel" to Spain for Europa League

Roma will not travel from Italy to Sevilla for a round of 16 Europa League clash on Thursday, after their plane was denied authorisation to land in Spain due to measures being put in place to contain the spread of coronavirus, ONA reports.

The two sides were due to meet in a first leg-clash at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, which now looks set to be postponed due to decision.

Roma have released an official statement on social media confirming the news, which reads: "AS Roma will not go to Spain for the Europa League match against Sevilla due to lack of authorization from local authorities. More details will be announced by UEFA."
