Football's European anti-discrimination body Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) passed footage to UEFA of an apparent attack on four black fans at the match in Ukraine on October 20 which ended 0-0. Charges were brought against Dynamo for racist behaviour, crowd disturbances and blocked stairways.

The club has also been fined 100,000 euros - and the order of closed doors for the third match will be suspended for three years and only applied if further offences are committed.

A UEFA statement read: "Dynamo Kiev has been ordered to play their next three UEFA competition matches as host club behind closed doors. The third match is suspended for a probationary period of three years."
