UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against FC Copenhagen after the Danish club's fans set off fireworks during their 1-0 Champions League defeat at Leicester City.

European football's governing body has been cracking down on the use of fireworks, flares and smoke bombs by supporters, with Celtic, Liverpool and Manchester City among the clubs recently fined or warned.

A statement posted on UEFA's official website said FC Copenhagen had been charged for "the setting off of fireworks - article 16 (2) of the UEFA disciplinary regulations" on Tuesday night. UEFA will hear the case on November 17th.


Aston Villa's Jack Grealish banned after violent conduct charge

Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has been banned for three games after accepting a charge of violent conduct. The 21-year-old will serve the suspension immediately meaning he will miss Villa's Sky Bet Championship trip to Reading - as well as their Second City derby with Birmingham at the end of the month. Grealish avoided punishment in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Wolves after he stamped on Conor Coady during the game at Villa Park. England Under-21 international Grealish accepted the charge but felt the three-game ban was excessive. His claim was rejected. An FA statement read:

"Aston Villa's Jack Grealish will serve a three-match suspension with immediate effect after he committed an act of violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video."

– FA statement

He will also miss Saturday's visit of Fulham in a blow to new boss Steve Bruce who took charge at the club last week. The Wolves draw was his first game in charge and left Villa 20th in the table and one point above the relegation zone. They have won just once this season and Roberto Di Matteo was sacked earlier this month after only 12 games at the club.
