Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena will be partially closed for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Man United as punishment for displaying a homophobic banner during the previous match against Arsenal, UEFA has announced.

Bayern Munich have been sanctioned with a partial closure of their stadium for the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester United after fans displayed a homophobic banner against Arsenal.

UEFA's control and disciplinary body ordered that the section of the stadium where the banner was displayed should be closed for the second leg against United.

The club have also been fined 10,000 euros for the "discriminatory behaviour" over the banner, which also targeted Arsenal's German midfielder Mesut Ozil.

UEFA said in a statement that as a result of "Bayern supporters... displaying of an illicit banner, the UEFA control and disciplinary body has decided to order the partial closure of the [stadium] in particular, the closure of sector 124 for Bayern's next UEFA competition home match, namely their UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester United on April 9."
