UEFA has charged CSKA Moscow with "racist behaviour of their fans" after Manchester City's Yaya Toure complained of monkey chants against him during the Champions League match in Moscow.

The Russian club have denied any racist abuse took place during Wednesday night's match but will face a disciplinary hearing next week.

A UEFA statement read: "Proceedings have been opened against CSKA Moscow for racist behaviour of their fans (article 14 of the UEFA disciplinary regulations) and for setting off of fireworks (article 16) at last night's UEFA Champions League group stage match in Moscow against Manchester City.

"The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on 30 October."
