Liverpool to play Haifa in Kiev
Rafael Benitez
Benitez has stated his opposition to playing in Israel
Kiev has been confirmed as the venue for Liverpool's away leg in their Champions League third-round qualifier against Israeli side Maccabi Haifa.

The match on 22 August has been moved because of the Middle East conflict.

Uefa confirmed last week that the match would be played at a neutral venue and Dynamo Kiev have agreed that their stadium can be used for the tie.

Liverpool take a 2-1 lead into the second leg after Mark Gonzalez's last-minute winner at Anfield.

After the draw was made, Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez said it was "totally unacceptable" to go to Israel, given the current security situation.
