Watford play arsenal at 8pm tonight. arsenal also play on Thursday in the Europa League away at Napoli.

Weíre told our game at home to arsenal will he brought forward to Sunday if they are still in the Europa League, otherwise it will be played on Monday night.

Why does that make a difference in the Semi Final but not the Quarter Final?

arsenal should have played yesterday to give them an extra day of rest between games. That day could be the difference between progression or not.

Modern football really is rubbish sometimes.

Unless arsenal themselves preferred an extra days rest after the first leg to prepare for a Premier League game aiding potential top 4 qualification for Champions League.

I said exactly the same in the pub before the game on Friday evening Daggers.
Also, fans cannot arrange travel or time off work as nobody will know till late on Thursday.
Who said modern football is rubbish 🤔

Itís probably some stupid UEFA rule Dags. For example in the 1/4 finals of the CL, one set of teams play Tuesday/Wednesday and the others play Wednesday/Tuesday! Itís apparently so the tv companies get a fairer share of the games. Remember us. We played the shorter period when we played Atletico.
The other stupid UEFA rule is that you canít have teams from the same city playing on the same night. So ņrsenal fans were drawn at home to Rennes first and they booked all their travel accordingly for the away leg. 75 mins later UEFA switched it as Chelsea ( the other side of London) were drawn at home first too. The Ńrse fans had already booked flights/trains, ferries etc.
UEFA said they acted quickly but as we found out on our European adventure if you hadnít booked your flights in the first 20-30 mins the prices had doubled or trebled.
Oh and then thereís the great idea of playing finals in totally inaccessible places. Kiev for last seasons CL and buckin Baku for this years EL final. Just brilliant!
