UEFA open Rome investigation

UEFA has opened a disciplinary investigation into Wednesday's AS Roma-Galatasaray SK match.

UEFA has opened a disciplinary investigation following events in the UEFA Champions League match between AS Roma and Galatasaray SK at the Olimpico stadium.

Unruly scenes
After the final whistle in Rome, both teams were involved in unruly scenes on the pitch that continued into the players' tunnel. European football's governing body has decided to investigate on the basis of various reports including those from the referee and match delegate.

Disciplinary meeting
It is likely that the incidents, which came after a 1-1 draw between the sides, will be considered at the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body meeting scheduled for 22 March in Nyon, Switzerland.
