Wolves fans devastated as Europa League clash vs Olympiacos to be played behind closed doors due to coronavirus – The Sun

WOLVES fans, who were expecting to see their team play in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie against Olympiacos, have been left devastated after the fixture is set to be played behind closed doors.

The outbreak of Coronavirus has led to many sporting events either being postponed or forced to play behind closed doors.

Italy have been hit hard by the disease, causing major problems in Serie A, with various games already postponed.

England's friendlies against against Italy and Denmark later this month are set to be cancelled with governing bodies taking precautionary measures to help prevent the further spread of the disease.

The Premier League banned the usual pre-match routine of shaking hands before the fixtures this weekend and there were no mascots involved either.

Wolves cruised through to the last-16 after beating Espanyol 6-3 on aggregate to set up a tie with the Greek side.

The decision to not allow fans in to the ground will come as a massive disappointment to the fans who were looking forward to a trip to Greece.
