Kosovo banner to spark UEFA action

UEFA have opened disciplinary proceedings against Bayern Munich after a banner relating to Kosovo was displayed during Tuesday's Champions League match with Arsenal.

The body said it was also considering action, after a report from Football Against Racism in Europe, over another banner directed at the Premier League club.

"UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Bayern for banner about Kosovo," UEFA press officer Pedro Pinto said.

Scottish champions Celtic were fined €50,000 in December after "illicit" banners were displayed by fans during a Champions League group match against AC Milan.
