Pais St Germain charged by UEFA over incidents during Champions League exit

UEFA has opened proceedings against Paris St Germain following incidents at Tuesday’s Champions League match against Real Madrid.

The alleged setting off of fireworks, use of a laser pointer, insufficient organisation and blocked stairways at the Parc des Princes are the charges levelled against the French side.

UEFA’s control, ethics and disciplinary body will deal with the charges on March 22.

Real won the match 2-1 for a 5-2 aggregate success which earned them a place in the quarter-finals.
