The Fare network has passed on two referrals of incidents at the Parc des Princes clash to the European governing body

An anti-discrimination group has asked Uefa to assess reports of fan misbehaviour at the recent Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea at the Parc des Princes.

The Fare network has referred two separate incidents from the opening fixture of the two-legged tie to the European governing body, who will now investigate the allegations.

One incident relates to alleged abuse of disabled fans, with the Daily Mail in England having reported earlier this week that a group of Chelsea supporters had been subjected to a barrage from coins, bottle and chewing gum thrown at them by PSG fans in the home section behind, while the group also claimed to have been spat on.

"Fare has referred two retrospective incidents to UEFA at PSG v CFC, #UCL QF on 2nd April. Abuse of disabled fans + a far-right CFC banner.

The second referral is in relation to a Chelsea flag in the visitors' section of the Parc des Princes, which is believed to have carried far-right imagery.

When contacted by Goal, Fare was unable to expand upon the tweet it sent reporting their referral to Fifa, with the matter now passed on to Uefa.

The Fare network was set up in 1999 and has been at the heart of many anti-discrimination initiatives in football since its formation.
