Paris Saint-Germain Face UEFA sanctions After Crowd Trouble Against Red Star Belgrade

share on:

Paris Saint-Germain could face sanctions from UEFA after they revealed on Thursday that they were opening an investigation into crowd trouble at this month’s Champions League match against Red Star Belgrade.

The game, which PSG won 6-1 at the Parc des Princes, is also being probed by French investigators over suspicions of match-fixing by the Serbian champions, when a senior official of the club allegedly bet millions of euros on the team to lose by five goals.

The Ligue 1 leaders have been charged over “setting off fireworks” and “crowd disturbances”, and were also fined 20,000 euros ($22,960) for a delayed kick-off.

As PSG had already had one stand closed due to flares being let off during last season’s last-16 exit to Real Madrid, they could be handed a heavier penalty if found guilty this time.

In addition to the incidents inside the Parc des Princes, clashes erupted between fans and police after the game outside the stadium.
