Slovan tie switched to Prague

FC Slovan Liberec's UEFA Cup tie with Olympique Lyonnais has been moved to Prague because of rain.

Heavy rain has forced the UEFA Cup fourth-round second leg match between FC Slovan Liberec and Olympique Lyonnais to be played in Prague instead of Liberec.

Pitch inspections
After several pitch inspections at Slovan's U Nisy stadium, UEFA decided to move the match to another venue due to waterlogging caused by downpours in Liberec over the last few days.

Game in Prague
The match will now take place in AC Sparta Praha's Letná stadium on Thursday at 17.00 CET. The first leg at Lyon's Stade Gerland finished 1-1.
