The Polish side had originally been ordered to close half of their ground for the last 32 first leg clash following security problems at the venue during their group match against Juventus last December.

The club won their appeal against the decision, and will now be allowed to sell up to 29,133 tickets for the match at the 43,090 capacity stadium.

The ground in Poznan is one of four venues in Poland which will be used for the 2012 European Championships, jointly held with neighbouring nation Ukraine.
