Pitch Invasions: UEFA Charged Manchester United
A fan ran across the pitch in the first half before a united set piece, with two more supporters making it onto the field after full time.
The latter pair of fans ran towards Juventus forward and former United player Cristiano Ronaldo, who appeared to take a selfie for one of the fans as he was being held by stewards.
A statement said United had been charged under Article 16 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, which relates to “field invasion”.
The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on November 22 – the week before United host their final Group H match against Young Boys.
A United spokesperson said: “We will be responding to the UEFA charge and we are reviewing our pitchside security protocols in the light of the pitch incursions at last night’s game.”
