Uefa has opened disciplinary cases against both Real Madrid and Barcelona following their ill-tempered Champions League semi-final first leg on Wednesday night.
“The case against Real Madrid is in relation to the throwing of missiles, a pitch invasion, the red card shown to Pepe, the dismissal of the coach José Mourinho, as well as the inappropriate statement given by Mr Mourinho to the media after the match (UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, Article 5 – Principles of conduct).,” said Uefa.
The case against Barcelona relates to the red card show to the reserve goalkeeper José Pinto in a melee as the teams returned to their dressing rooms at half-time.
Conveniently both cases will be heard by the Uefa Control and Disciplinary Body on 6 May, after the two sides have met in the second-leg. Anther gutless decision by UEFA.
