Uefa have charged Marseille over the behaviour of their fans after an object was thrown at Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard during their Champions League meeting on Wednesday.
Liverpool’s 1-0 win was marred by the incident late in the first half as Gerrard prepared to take a corner in front of the visiting fans.
Gerrard was struck by what appeared to be a cigarette lighter thrown from a section of Marseille supporters and the midfielder was praised after the game for not reacting to the incident.
“He is a good professional. Steven did well not to react,” said Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez.
The incident follows a similar incident when the two teams met in France and Uefa have fined Marseille €15,000 after an object was thrown during the clash between the two sides at Stade Velodrome in September.
