Amid massive disappointment that spectators will not be allowed onto the ground on Saturday, November 7 when the game takes place, it is something of a relief to know the match will be broadcast at all.
The Emirates FA Club match will be available via the BBC digital platform. In the absence of supporters, this is the next best thing fans could have hoped for.
Kick off has been confirmed as 3pm on Saturday, November 7, although there has been talk of a postponement until Sunday afternoon.
