Barcelona tie switched

FC Barcelona and Panionos NFC, and Parma AC and SV Austria Salzburg, have reversed their second-round matches.

FC Barcelona and Greek side Panionos NFC are two of four sides who have agreed to reverse their UEFA Cup second-round matches next month.

Return in Spain
The first leg, which had originally been scheduled for the Camp Nou on 6 November, will now take place in Athens. The second leg will be played in Barcelona three weeks later, on 27 November.

Home comforts
Panionos secured their place in the second round by defeating Danish side FC Nordsjælland 3-1 on aggregate. Barça hammered ŠKM Púchov 8-0 last week - their only home win to date this season - to secure a 9-1 aggregate success.

Second change
Parma AC and SV Austria Salzburg have come to a similar arrangement, switching their games on the same dates. The first leg will now be played in Linz, Austria - with the return leg now set for the Ennio Tardini.
