UEFA Will Investigate Barcelona v Chelsea

November 1, 2006

champions-league.jpgTuesday’s Champions League match between Barcelona and Chelsea is to be investigated by UEFA to decide what fines will be handed out.

The heated match saw ten yellow cards, six of which went to Chelsea. By UEFA rules, teams receiving five or more bookings are automatically fined.

Although both teams surrounded Italian referee Stefano Farina on several occasions, the worst incident took place when Ashley Cole was booked.

It appeared that Barcelona believed Cole’s yellow was his second, mistaking Frank Lampard’s earlier booking for Cole’s first yellow.

Other incidents included Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard charging Farina at game’s end and Barcelona fans hurling objects at Chelsea players following the match.
