Arsenal-Udinese gets all-clear

Udinese's Champions League match with Arsenal on Tuesday will not be postponed despite security fears following riots in London.

Several sporting events in England were called off this week after rioting in the streets, including the international friendly with Holland at Wembley Stadium.

There were concerns the situation could affect Udinese's Champions League preliminary round tie at the Emirates, but Arsenal confirmed it will go ahead as planned.

Kick-off is at 19.45 UK time on Tuesday August 16.

The second leg is at the Stadio Friuli on August 24 and reports suggest tickets have nearly sold out already.
