NYON, Switzerland (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain faces UEFA disciplinary action for alleged racist behavior by fans at a Champions League match against Chelsea.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge the case on July 17.

If proven, the French champions face a fine and partial stadium closure at its first home match in the group stage of the Champions League in September.

UEFA says the incident happened in the quarterfinal in Paris on April 2.

PSG won 3-1 but was eliminated on away goal after Chelsea won 2-0 in the return leg.
