Spartak Moscow fans face possible UEFA sanctions after a projectile was launched in the direction of the referee during their draw against Maribor.

UEFA has banned Spartak Moscow from selling tickets for their next Champions League away game after a rocket-like flare was fired towards a referee.

The ticket ban will apply to Spartak’s trip to play Sevilla on Nov. 1. The Russian champions have also been fined €60,000. 

Spartak’s home game against Liverpool on Tuesday in Moscow will not be affected.

The flare rocketed out of the section holding visiting Spartak fans early in their 1-1 draw with Slovenian champion Maribor last week. It landed in the center circle near German referee Denis Aytekin and burnt out. The referee briefly stopped play.
