Barcelona fined for celebratory PSG pitch invasion logo 23-03-2017

Barcelona have been fined €19,000 after their extraordinary Champions League comeback against Paris Saint-Germain sparked a pitch invasion at Camp Nou.

A Neymar-inspired Barca team fought back after losing the first leg 4-0 in Paris to beat PSG 6-1 on home turf.

'Griezmann could leave Atletico at any time'

Sergi Roberto's stoppage-time clincher understandably sparked scenes of wild celebration among the home fans, but UEFA have taken a dim view and hit the Spanish giants in the pocket.

Their sanction also accounted for "improper conduct of the team" as they picked up five yellow cards in the match.

UEFA have also handed out additional fines to other clubs for breaking disciplinary rules in the Champions League and Europa League.

Napoli will have to pay €38,000 for the use of laser pointers, blocking stairways, and setting off fireworks during their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid.

Rostov were also penalised for fans setting off fireworks, and have been fined €16,000.

The biggest fine handed out is for Saint-Etienne during their Europa League loss against Manchester United. The Ligue 1 club need to pay €50,000 for the use of fireworks, throwing of objects and improper conduct from their fans.
