UEFA is expected to take action after Bayern Munich fans displayed a homophobic banner targeting Arsenal and their German midfield star Mesut Ozil in Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 tie.
Chief of press Pedro Pinto says on Twitter: “There will be news from Uefa on the matter this afternoon.”
Regarding the insult against Arsenal, UEFA has received a report from FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) and will communicate shortly,” said Pinto.
Uefa earlier opened disciplinary proceedings against Bayern for another offending banner related to Kosovo.
Bayern sealed a 3-1 aggregate win over Arsenal in their round of 16 tie against the Gunners.
