Spartak, Žilina decisions announced

UEFA has penalised MŠK Žilina and FC Spartak Moskva following their match on 8 December, including a suspended order for Spartak to play one game behind closed doors.

The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has announced sanctions for both MŠK Žilina and FC Spartak Moskva as a result of incidents during the clubs' recent UEFA Champions League encounter in Slovakia.

The Russian club have been ordered to play a UEFA competition home match behind closed doors. This sanction is deferred for a probationary period of two years.

Spartak had been charged with the improper conduct of supporters at the UEFA Champions League Group F game at the Štadión MŠK Žilina on 8 December. The Muscovite side were also issued a €75,000 fine, after serious incidents which included the ignition and throwing of fireworks.

In addition, the Spartak player Ibson has been suspended for the next two European matches for which he will be eligible, following his 77th-minute red card against the Slovakian champions.

Žilina, meanwhile, received a warning about the improper conduct of their team as well as a €5,000 fine. The home players picked up five yellow cards during a game that they lost 2-1 to Spartak.
