Liverpool and Sevilla charged over crowd trouble

Europa League finalists Liverpool and Sevilla have been charged by UEFA for "crowd disturbances" at St Jakob-Park in Basel on Wednesday.

The governing body has once again charged Liverpool after their supporters set off fireworks in the previous rounds of the competition, against Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

Sevilla have received a charge for "throwing of objects", while both clubs faced further fines for a clash between supporters prior to kick-off.

The case will be dealt with by UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary committee on 21 July.

Sevilla won the final 3-1 following a dominant second-half performance, securing the trophy for a record third consecutive time.
