Paris Saint-Germain have escaped with a fine from European football’s governing body UEFA following crowd trouble at their Champions League home game against Red Star Belgrade in October.

The French giants ran the risk of being forced to play their next home European match, against Manchester United in the Champions League last 16 second leg in March — behind closed doors.

Trouble erupted outside the Parc des Princes after the game, but the only punishment for the crowd disturbances and ‘illicit chants’ from their supporters was a fine of 35,000 euros.
