Cologne and Arsenal have both been charged by UEFA following incidents during Thursday’s Europa League match. The German club face four charges, including crowd disturbances and setting off fireworks while the Gunners face a charge over block stairways.
The game was delayed by more than an hour as thousands of away fans arrived at Emirates Stadium without tickets. About twenty thousand Cologne fans turn up in London despite the German club being given a ticket allocation of two thousand nine hundred.
This case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on the twenty-first of September, 2017
