Paris Saint-Germain fined by UEFA for crowd trouble

Vastavam web: Paris Saint-Germain have escaped with a fine from European football’s governing body UEFA following crowd trouble at their Champions League home game against Red Star Belgrade in October. The French giants ran the risk of being forced to play their next home European match — against Manchester United in the Champions League last 16 second leg in March — behind closed doors. Trouble erupted outside the Parc des Princes after the game, but the only punishment for the crowd disturbances and “illicit chants” from their supporters was a fine of 35,000 euros (USD 40,346).

Meanwhile, Olympiakos were fined 90,000 euros and handed a suspended one-game stadium ban after their fans set off fireworks and invaded the pitch when the Greek club beat AC Milan 3-1 in the Europa League last month.
