UEFA mull action after Dynamo Kiev, Besiktas incidents

UEFA said Thursday it will censure Dynamo Kiev and Besiktas for incidents which marred the final round of Champions League group action Wednesday.

European football’s governing body said it had opened disciplinary proceedings after the match in the Ukrainian capital which the already eliminated hosts won 6-0 to send the Turks crashing out.

Dynamo face charges relating to crowd disturbances including the setting off of fireworks – and further censure for blocked stairways and insufficient segregation while Besiktas also face censure regarding fan behaviour and use of firecrackers.

UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body will deal with the case on February 2 after the incidents at the Olympic Stadium where the visitors had two men sent off.

UEFA’s remit only covers onsite incidents and will not be able to intervene regarding unrest before the match in the streets which saw ten Besiktas fans hurt — two of them suffering stab wounds.

Besiktas move across to the Europa League after placing third in Group B.
