Champions League: UEFA bans Bayern Munich fans from Arsenal clash

UEFA has banned Bayern Munich fans from the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie at Arsenal.

The fixture was confirmed following Friday’s draw.

But according to the UK Standard, supporters of the Bundesliga champions will not be allowed to travel to the UK for the match.

This is because Bayern fans threw fireworks onto the pitch during their 3-1 aggregate win against Lazio in the Round of 16.

Arsenal will therefore be able to fill the vacant away end with their own fans for the home leg.

The first legs of the quarter-final fixtures will be played on April 9 and 10, with the second-leg fixtures on April 16 and 17.
