Referees Björn Kuipers and Serdar Gözübüyük were appointed by UEFA on Tuesday to lead a Europa League match on Thursday.

Kuipers is in charge of the game between Arsenal and Benfica, while Gözübüyük whistles the home game of Leicester City against Slavia Prague.

Due to the current European travel restrictions, Arsenal-Benfica (kick-off at 6.55 pm) does not take place on English soil.

Instead, Kuipers travels to Piraeus, Greece, where the game is played on neutral grounds.

Last week, both teams also met each other on neutral ground.

In Rome, Benfica and Arsenal then held each other in a 1-1 draw.

Unlike Kuipers, Gözübüyük does travel to England.

Leicester City 'just' receives Slavia Prague in its own King Power Stadium.

The first game ended in 0-0 last week in the Czech Republic.

The kick-off in Leicester is Thursday at 9 p.m.

Allard Lindhout, Kevin Blom and Jochem Kamphuis will also play in the Europa League on Thursday.

They are respectively fourth official, VAR and assistant VAR during the return between Manchester United and Real Sociedad at Old Trafford.

The first leg was played in Turin and was won 0-4 by United.

Serdar Gözübüyük will be in charge of Leicester City-Slavia Prague on Thursday.
