Arsenal, Bayern charged by UEFA after incidents in Champions League tie

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against both Arsenal and Bayern Munich over incidents in the Champions League tie at the Emirates on Tuesday night.
The game was won 5-1 Bayern, who completed a 10-2 aggregate victory over the Londoners, but visiting fans threw toilet rolls onto the pitch in the early stages to protest against high ticket prices.
That has led to UEFA imposing a charge related to the throwing of objects, a statement said, while Arsenal have been charged after a fan ran onto the pitch in the closing moments of the match.
The incident happened in the 88th minute and has resulted in the home side being charged in relation to “field invasions by supporters.”
The intruder briefly interrupted play moments after Arturo Vidal had scored the fifth goal for the Bundesliga champions.
