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.
