Hapoel v Bilbao will take place next week

Hapoel v Bilbao will take place next week

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.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
