The evening was sadly animated, Tuesday evening at the Parc des Princes, during PSG-Juventus (2-1). Videos indeed show Turin supporters performing monkey cries or Nazi salutes in the visitor park. The Prefecture of Police has announced that an investigation was opened because “Four individuals were identified by video and then arrested last night (Tuesday) by the police for public provocation to racial hatred within the framework of a sports arena, during the PSG-Juve football match”.
The grandstand should not be closed
According to our information, UEFA has also taken up the case and will directly open a “disciplinary case” against the Italian club (already concerned for similar facts in Serie A) or appoint a disciplinary inspector to gather all the necessary evidence. In this type of case, the club concerned is generally sanctioned with a travel ban for its supporters.
In addition, UEFA must also open a disciplinary case against PSG for the abundant use of smoke bombs during this first Champions League meeting of the season. The Parisian club should be fined, but probably not a partial closure of the stands.
