thumbnail Hello,

Europe's governing body UEFA have charged Marseille and Roma over the misbehavior of their fans during Champions League matches...

The misdeeds of French Ligue 1 side Marseille's fans have not gone unnoticed by UEFA.

Projectile throwing from the l'OM faithful occurred during both the home and away clashes with Liverpool.

Les Phocéens have been fined €15,000 for the antics which took place during the September visit of the Reds to the Stade Vélodrome.

Now, on December 11, they'll answer to even more serious charges after 'Pool captain Steven Gerrard was struck by an object - believed to be a cigarette lighter - at Anfield on Wednesday. Referee Olegario Benquerenca has detailed the incident in a report requested by the UEFA disciplinary panel.

Italian giants Roma are also in hot water after fireworks were set off at the Stadio Olimpico when The Giallorossi hosted another English Premier League side, Chelsea.

UEFA have slammed the Serie A club for "insufficient organisation" and will hear what they have to say on the matter on the same day Marseille explain why Gerrard was targeted.

Roma don't have much hope as far as their case is concerned, as their fans were also reportedly fighting before the game, drawing attention to themselves even before the fireworks fiasco.
