Sevilla, who won the match 3-1, were fined €17,000 (£14,242) for their part in the disturbances, which involved crowd disturbances and the throwing of objects.

A small numbers of supporters clashed behind one of the goals shortly before kick-off, with many fans blaming poor segregation for the problems.

There was also criticism of UEFA’s choice of the St Jakob-Park stadium, which with its capacity of just 35,000 was the smallest chosen to host a major European final.
