Haifa-Rennes Europa League game to be played in Budapest

Israeli club Maccabi Haifa’s Europa League match against Rennes next week has been moved from Belgrade to the Puskas Arena in Budapest, UEFA announced on Thursday.

The game on November 30 had previously been switched from Israel to Belgrade but European football’s governing body said the Rajko Mitic Stadium was now unavailable.

It had already been confirmed the match would be played behind closed doors.

UEFA decided last month no European matches would be played in Israel “until further notice” due to the country’s war with Hamas in Gaza.

Haifa sit bottom of Europa League Group F, eight points behind leaders Rennes but with a game in hand.
