European clubs, players and fans show support for the Ukraine conflict

Ukraine international Ruslan Malinovskyi scored twice in Atalanta's 3-0 win at Olympiakos and revealed a T-shirt with the message "No War in Ukraine".

Zenit St Petersburg was the only Russian club playing against Real Betis in Seville, and home supporters held up a Ukrainian flag inside the stadium.

Zenit suffered a 3-2 defeat on aggregate after having an injury-time goal disallowed by VAR, which would have taken the tie to extra time. Meanwhile, the Russian side had defender Yaroslav Rakitskiy, capped 54 times by Ukraine, on the bench.

Ukraine's Manchester City defender Oleksandr Zinchenko was not in action, but he joined a vigil in the centre of Manchester to show his support for his country.
