Both clubs returned most of the 6,000 tickets they received from UEFA, as there were not enough fans interested, because the deal, mainly due to the distance of 4,000 kilometers, is extremely expensive.
In addition, the game is accompanied by political upheaval because the Arsenal striker, Armenian Henri Mkhitaryan, did not receive a visa, since the two countries do not have diplomatic relations after the war.
