Feyenoord’s Uefa Cup game against Tottenham could be held behind closed doors because of possible disciplinary action against the Dutch club.
Feyenoord were given a suspended two-match stadium ban after their fans rioted before a game against Nancy.
But Uefa has appealed against its independent disciplinary tribunal’s decision.
“The reasoning is that there have been so many previous incidents involving Feyenoord,” said a Uefa spokesman.
“We are asking the disciplinary commission to reconsider and a more severe penalty for example could be for the sentence not to be suspended.”
The appeal will be heard early in January with the match against Toottenham played in February.
