Both in same city. Both cant be played on the Thursday.

It seems almost certainly that sporting is the one that will have to move. Appears Tuesday or Wednesday. More likely Tuesday.

Benfica SHOULD stay as Thursday.

Have I got anything wrong ?

The rules/guidance for the switch are in a UEFA document which posted on here a few days ago.

Must rank amongst the shortest distances between stadiums of major football clubs.

Could be either Weds or Thurs. Be a bit lively on Weds night with both sets of away fans in the City.

Sporting Lisbon has a Lidl in one side of the stadium. Saw them lose to Sintra in the Portuguese Cup around 5 year ago

Just think of the problems getting flights and hotels at reasonable prices if both us and West Ham or Liverpool are drawn against the Lisbon teams.

Currently in Lisbon. A representative from Benfica said of the potential draw with the albion that they "wouldn't like it, but they'd have to go along with it."
Are people there any the wiser about whose game will be moved and to which day ?
