UEFA cite PSG for alleged racism in match against Chelsea

PARIS (Reuters) - Paris St Germain have been ordered to face UEFA's disciplinary panel over allegations of racism by their fans in last month's Champions League quarter-final against Chelsea in Paris.

UEFA have acted against the French champions following reports of "racism, other discriminatory conduct and propaganda" during the first-leg on April 2.

PSG won 3-1 but were eliminated by Chelsea on away goals after losing 2-0 at Stamford Bridge six days later.

"The UEFA control and disciplinary body will decide on the matter on 17 July 2014," said a UEFA statement.
