The Ukrainian side have been charged with racist behaviour and crowd disturbances following an incident captured on camera by anti-discrimination network Football Against Racism in Europe at the Group G match, which finished goalless.

Footage of the incident apparently shows a group of Dynamo fans attacking four black men after spotting them in a neighbouring section of the NSK Olimpiysky.

FARE's executive director, Piara Powar, confirmed to Press Association Sport: "Usually we do not go public with these sort of reports - but we thought the footage was so serious that it should be shared with the media."

UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body will deal with the case on Tuesday, October 27.

Earlier this year, Dynamo were fined €15,000 by European football's governing body following the racist behaviour of their fans during a Europa League match against Everton at the same venue.

The Ukrainian side were also punished for setting off fireworks and for insufficient organisation during the 5-2 second leg win over the Toffees in March.

UEFA also ordered partial closure of their home ground for the first leg of the quarter-final against Fiorentina the following month.
