Barca fined £16,500 over fans’ improper celebration

UEFA has fined Barcelona for fans running on the pitch to celebrate their dramatic Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain.
Sergi Roberto’s added-time goal sealed an incredible 6-1 win for Luis Enrique’s men at the Nou Camp, sparking jubilant scenes among players and supporters alike.
Some fans could not resist jumping over the advertising hoardings and celebrating on the playing surface with their heroes, who had just reached the quarter-finals.
UEFA says the £16,500 (19,000 euros) fine includes a mandatory sanction because five players were shown yellow cards during the second leg.
Three other clubs have also been fined for incidents at recent Champions League and Europa League games.
Saint-Etienne must pay £43,250 (50,000 euros) for fans’ improper conduct and lighting flares at Old Trafford during their 3-0 defeat against Manchester United.
Napoli have been fined £32,900 (38,000 euros) for a range of offences during their 3-1 home loss against Real Madrid.
UEFA also asked Rostov to pay £13,900 (16,000 euros) for fans lighting fireworks at Sparta Prague’s stadium last month.
