We could still be in for an all-English final as Fulham and Liverpool are into the semi-finals – Outright betting here.

The first leg of Europa League semi-final between Atletico Madrid and Liverpool will be played on Thursday as scheduled.

The volcanic cloud of ash drifting east from Iceland has caused travel chaos across the continent and this week’s European matches appeared to be under threat.

A decision was delayed over Liverpool’s game against Atletico Madrid due to logistical reasons but Uefa have now declared it will go ahead.

Rafa Benitez’s men face West Ham in the Premier League on Monday night and will then have to make plans to travel to Madrid.

Uefa have not ruled out the possibility of a postponement nearer the time, saying they will continue to ‘monitor the travel situation’.

A statement read: “Regarding the UEFA Europa League semi-final first-leg matches scheduled for Thursday 22 April, between Club Atletico de Madrid and Liverpool FC, and Hamburg SV and Fulham FC, it is planned that both games will go ahead as normal.

“However, with the majority of airspace over Europe still closed and other forms of transport limited or fully booked, UEFA are in close contact with both English clubs on the travel options available to them.

“Further news and information on the exact travel possibilities for these away teams is expected over the next 24 hours.”
