Kiev’s Olympic Stadium will host Shakhtar Donetsk’s game against Lyon

Shakhtar Donetsk have confirmed their Champions League tie against Lyon next week will take place in Kiev rather than Kharkiv.

Kharkiv, where the club play their home matches, falls under the martial law decree issued on November 28 by the Kiev government amid tension with Russia in eastern Ukraine.

“UEFA has decided that the Champions League match against Lyon will be played at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev,” the club said on its website.
