Spar­tak flare up

The Mercury - - SPORT -

UEFA have opened dis­ci­plinary pro­ceed­ings against Rus­sian cham­pi­ons Spar­tak Moscow af­ter a flare al­most hit the ref­eree dur­ing their Cham­pi­ons League match at Mari­bor. The flare was fired from the stand con­tain­ing the vis­it­ing fans and came close to hit­ting Ger­man of­fi­cial Deniz Aytekin dur­ing Spar­tak’s 1-1 draw at the Slove­nian cham­pi­ons on Wed­nes­day. Uefa also charged Sevilla man­ager Ed­uardo Ber­izzo af­ter he was sent to the stands by the ref­eree Danny Makke­lie for throw­ing the ball away when it went out of play dur­ing his side’s 2-2 draw with Liver­pool. Fol­low­ing his dis­missal, Ber­izzo will be sus­pended for at least Sevilla’s next Euro­pean match against Mari­bor, Uefa said. The Uefa Con­trol, Ethics and Dis­ci­plinary Body will deal with both the cases on Septem­ber 21. – Reuters
