UEFA has given Dynamo's match in the Conference League 'high risk' status: what happened
The first match of Dynamo Kyiv in the third qualifying round of the Conference League against Greek Aris has caused concern among the European Football Union (UEFA) management. The organization's headquarters in Nyon concluded that Thessaloniki would host a high-risk match.
This is reported by the official website of Aris. UEFA decided to send two of its observers to the meeting, which will be held on Thursday, August 10. One of the UEFA representatives will monitor the match itself, while the other will be responsible for the safety at the stadium.
At the same time, nothing is known about the reasons for such a step on the part of the main governing body of European soccer. Perhaps it is related to the death of a Greek AEK fan, who became a victim of a brawl with Dinamo Zagreb ultras. Given that Croatian and Kyiv fans are friends, there is a possibility that the Greeks will want to avenge the death of their friend on Ukrainian fans.
It should be noted that the confrontation between Aris and Dynamo will be held at the stadium "Kleanthis Vikelidis" and will begin at 21:15 Kyiv time. OBOZREVATEL will hold an online broadcast of the match "Aris" - "Dynamo".
As reported OBOZREVATEL, with Lugansk "Zorya" and "Dnipro-1" had a unique case at the draw of the third qualifying round of the Europa League.
