Arsenal's return leg in the Europa League unlikely to be held in Athens

 By 1970's Gooner

Uefa are now searching for new venues which would be eligible to hold Arsenal's "home' return leg as the Athens solution is unlikely to be available. 

This is because the Government of Greece has announced  today Tuesday that a lock down will be imposed on the Attika area, which includes Athens, until the end of February.
