Switzerland-Ukraine will not be played tonight, as planned. UEFA has decided to cancel the meeting because the Ukrainian delegation is in quarantine after the positives of Evgeny Makarenko and Eduard Sobol, who played last Saturday against Germany, and Dmitriy Riznyk tested positive for coronavirus. All three were replaced by players from the U21 team. Now, the new date to play the match depends on UEFA.

Yesterday, UEFA planned to continue with the game and reported this in a statement “it remains as planned, pending the approval of the competent Swiss authorities.”
