Europa League ties to go ahead

Liverpool's Europa League semi-final first leg at Atletico Madrid will go ahead as planned on Thursday despite the problems with flights, UEFA today announced.

The governing body had earlier confirmed Fulham's semi-final in Hamburg would also take place.

The disruption caused to flights by the volcanic ash had led to fears the games would be postponed but UEFA say while they will continue to monitor the situation both matches are still scheduled to take place.
