After ugly scenes between Köln and Nice fans that left 32 injured in France, UEFA has fined the Billy Goats €100,000. Köln also cannot sell tickets to their next two European away matches.

Nice received disciplinary action with their fans banned from attending their next home and away UEFA fixtures. The Ligue 1 side will have to play their following Europa Conference League home match behind closed doors.

On the other hand, Frankfurt are on probation for a year after fan issues during their Europa League away fixture against Marseille. Eintracht cannot sell tickets to their next European away match and face a partial home UEFA stadium ban. If their upcoming games run smoothly, the fine will stay at €45,000.
