Sparta Prague fans banned from Europe League tie against Rostov


Europe’s football authority, UEFA, has banned Sparta Prague fans from the away leg of their Europa League match against Rostov. As well as the ban on travelling fans, Sparta will also have to pay a fine of 45,000 euros for the behaviour of their fans at the last group game at Milan. Around 100 Sparta supporters then tried to break down the barriers separating the opposing fans with 16 security guards injured in the ensuing melee. The game against Rostov is scheduled for February 16 with the return leg in Prague a week later.
