FC Dinamo 1948 Bucureşti have had a 3-0 defeat awarded against them after the misbehaviour of supporters caused the abandonment of their UEFA Europa League play-off against FC Slovan Liberec.

Default defeat
The UEFA Control and Displinary Body handed down the default defeat after Dinamo's first-leg tie in Bucharest, Romania, on 20 August had to be abandoned soon after Slovan Liberec's 84th-minute goal had made the scoreline 2-0 to the visitors. As well as amending the result from 2-0 to 3-0 in favour of the Czech club, the Control and Disciplinary Body has also ordered Dinamo to play their next three home games in European competition behind closed doors – although one of those matches will be deferred for a two-year probationary period.

Right of appeal
The Romanian club must also pay a €50,000 fine. Dinamo may appeal against the decision within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decision. The Slovan-Dinamo second-leg tie will go ahead as scheduled on Thursday 27 August.
