Reds again charged for misconduct after Anfield game vs Dortmund
UEFA have charged Liverpool after a flare was thrown onto the pitch during their game with Borussia Dortmund at Anfield on Thursday.
The game, which saw Liverpool stage a remarkable comeback to go through to the semi-finals of the Europa League on aggregate, saw the crowd go crazy and set of fireworks at Anfield.
It comes after Manchester City were charged with the same thing for letting off fireworks outside the Etihad after their Champions League victory over PSG on Tuesday.
Liverpool are still facing 5 charges from the last-16 tie against Manchester United, including, illicit chants, setting off fireworks, throwing objects, crowd disturbances and a late kick-off.
All these charges will be reviewed and judged at UEFA’s hearing on May 19th, the day after the Europa League final.
The club did publically urge supporters against the use of flares, but the problems persisted in both legs of the Dortmund tie. A flare was let off in the away leg after Divock Origi put Liverpool ahead in Germany.
