The Europa League match between Hapoel Kiryat Shmona and Athletic Bilbao, which was postponed this week due to security concerns in Israel, will be played next Wednesday, UEFA have announced.

The Group I match was scheduled to take place in Haifa on Thursday night but was called off on Wednesday after the Spanish side reportedly revealed their concerns in making the trip to the strife-torn region.

A bomb ripped through a bus near Israel's military headquarters in Tel Aviv on Wednesday morning, wounding at least 10 people. Athletic were due to land in Tel Aviv that afternoon before commuting to nearby Haifa, where the match was to take place.

A UEFA statement on Friday read: "The Europa League matchday five game between Hapoel Kiryat Shmona and Athletic Club in Israel will take place at 21.05CET next Wednesday.

"The Group I fixture was postponed this week due to the tense security situation in the region. The game will go ahead at the Itztadion Kiryat Eliezer in Haifa on Wednesday, 28 November."

Last night's draw between Lyon and Sparta Prague, the top two teams in Group I, means that neither Hapoel nor Athletic can reach the last 32.
