Inter and Ludogorets will play their Europa League fixture behind closed doors, it was announced this evening.

Inter will play against Ludogorets behind closed doors after no risks will be taken following the recent coronavirus outbreak in Italy.

The Nerazzurri won the reverse fixture last week and will be looking to secure their spot in the round of 16 with a win.

Even before the news was announced this evening, it was more than certain some precautionary measure would be taken ahead of the clash.

Especially as four Serie A games were already postponed earlier this week.

 On their official website, Ludogorets broke the news. 

“UEFA has officially announced that the match against Inter in the Europa League round of 32 will be played behind closed doors. “

“This morning, the Milan club sent a letter to Ludogorets announcing that the authorities gave permission for the game to take place without fans,” it read.”

Inter will be hoping the coronavirus saga doesn’t cause unnecessary distraction in their quest for Serie A glory this season.
