Uefa admitted they kept ticket allocations low as they were unable to guarantee Baku's Heydar Aliyev airport could cope with over 15,000 passengers in a day. "I don't understand what the solution is".
"Even before Arsenal qualified for the final, we received a request from UEFA to provide the guarantees, our state authorities provided all the necessary security arrangements for Mkhitaryan to travel to Baku".
