The Europa League clashes between Sevilla and Roma and Inter Milan and Getafe have been postponed as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

European governing body UEFA has announced that the two last 16 ties will not go ahead after the Spanish government introduced travel restrictions in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19.

A UEFA statement said: "As a result of the travelling restrictions between Spain and Italy imposed yesterday by the Spanish authorities, the following UEFA Europa League Round of 16 matches will not take place as scheduled tomorrow, 12 March 2020.

"Sevilla FC (Spain) - AS Roma (Italy)

"FC Internazionale (Italy) - Getafe CF (Spain)

"Further decisions on the two matches will be communicated in due course."

The clubs had earlier confirmed that they would not be travelling for the ties, with Getafe club president Angel Torres saying, "if we have to lose the tie, then we lose it."
