UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Liverpool and Roma following their Champions League semi-final first leg at Anfield.

Liverpool have been charged with setting off fireworks and throwing objects while both clubs have been charged for crowd disturbances based on incidents that took place outside the stadium.

The Merseyside club raised concerns over police security ahead of the second leg in Rome. This was due to a Liverpool fan, Sean Cox, being left in a critical condition following an incident outside Anfield.

Two Italian men were later charged and remanded in custody.

Ahead of the second leg, Merseyside Police confirmed to Sky Sports News they had not received any reports of disturbances between Liverpool and Roma fans in the Italian capital in the lead up to kick-off.

Jurgen Klopp’s side face Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League on Saturday in Kyiv after beating Roma 7-6 on aggregate.

The case will be dealt with by UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary body on May 31.
