Arsenal and Bayern Munich have been charged by UEFA over ‘fan incidents’ that occurred during their Champions League match on Tuesday night.

Arsenal have been charged for allowing a fan to run onto the pitch while Bayern Munich have been charged for their fans throwing objects (toilet paper) on to the pitch.

A statement from UEFA said: “Disciplinary proceedings have been opened following the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 match between Arsenal FC and FC Bayern Munchen (1-5), played on 7 March in England.

“Charges against Arsenal FC: Field invasions by supporters – Art. 16 (2) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (DR).

“Charges against FC Bayern Munchen: Throwing of objects – Art. 16 (2) of DR.

“No other disciplinary cases have been opened after this match.”

UEFA’s disciplinary panel will judge the cases on March 23.

Back in July, UEFA fined Portugal €5,000 for a fan running onto the pitch during a Euro quarter-final.
