Following an investigation into alleged incidents of racism that took place during the match, a statement published by UEFA announced the governing body had imposed a "partial stadium closure at the next UEFA Youth League home match of Club Atletico de Madrid Youth and a fine of E10,000."

Atletico had been charged with "improper conduct of the team and racist behaviour of their supporters".
