Liverpool and Sevilla fans clash

The clashes between a small number of fans were broken up by police, who provided some segregation

Liverpool and Sevilla have been charged by Uefa for “crowd disturbances” at the Europa League final.

Rival supporters clashed before kick-off at St Jakob-Park in Basel, after some Liverpool fans obtained tickets in the non-segregated Sevilla end.

The Spanish club, who won 3-1, sold only 7,000 of their 9,000 allocated tickets, with Reds fans appearing to fill three quarters of the stadium.

Liverpool also face a charge for “setting off of fireworks”.

Sevilla, who play Barcelona in Sunday’s Copa del Rey final, also received a charge for “throwing of objects”.

This case will be dealt with on 21 July.
