UEFA have insisted that the Europa League quarter-final tie between Arsenal and CSKA Moscow would not be moved, amid the ongoing diplomatic crisis between Britain and Russian Federation.

The north London side managed to reach the quarter finals of Europe's secondary cup competition with an impressive 5-1 aggregate win over Italian giants AC Milan, securing a 3-1 victory at the Emirates Stadium in the second leg on Thursday.

The European game will come against the backdrop of diplomatic tensions between the British Government and the Kremlin during the fallout of the nerve agent attack on ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury earlier this month.

"Due to heightened political tensions between the United Kingdom and Russian Federation, you should be aware of the possibility of anti-British sentiment or harassment at this time".

"While the British Embassy in Moscow is not aware of any increased difficulties for British people travelling in Russian Federation at this time, you should follow the security and political situation closely and keep up to date with this travel advice".

The Gunners will welcome Viktor Goncharenko's men to the Emirates on April 5 for the first leg of the quarter-final, before facing the Moscow outfit at the VEB Arena a week later. For a few lucky/privileged people, this means planning a road trip - away games are fun, traveling with a band of like-minded supporters creates some fantastic memories and is an experience that is not soon forgotten, regardless of destination.

That advice was reposted on Arsenal's website after the Europa League draw was made on Friday.

The two remaining English clubs, Liverpool and Manchester City, have drawn each other.

"UEFA is a sports organisation whose aim is to promote and develop football, which can benefit and provide enjoyment for large sections of society".
