Dinamo Zagreb are to face a
disciplinary hearing following a protest by Bulgarian champions
Ludogorets over their controversial Champions League qualifier
last week, UEFA said on Thursday.
Ludogorets, who won their maiden league title in May, said
club officials were the victims of racial abuse and offensive
chants while cups of beer and other objects were thrown at them
in the main stand of Maksimir stadium.
Croatian champions Dinamo won the second qualifying round
tie 4-3 on aggregate after they scored in the eighth minute of
stoppage time to win the second leg 3-2. A draw in that match
would have sent the Bulgarians through on away goals.
"Dinamo are to face charges for improper conduct by their
supporters," said UEFA in a statement, adding that the
disciplinary board would hear the case on August 23.
Razgrad-based Ludogorets, whose protest was backed by the
Bulgarian Football Union, were also angry at the performance of
German referee Felix Zwayer.
Dinamo beat Molodvan champions Sheriff Tiraspol 1-0 away in
the first leg of the third qualifying round on Wednesday.
