After crowd trouble during their last home Champions League tie against Marseille, Napoli could be punished by UEFA who could insist the game against Arsenal takes place behind closed doors.
A decision is expected today or tomorrow from the game’s authorities, but the move would clearly not just punish the Italian side but all the Arsenal fans who have made travel plans, and booked flights and hotels.
The Guardian suggest that Arsenal are not expecting a ban, but it would be a huge inconvenience and cost for away day Gooners if UEFA did decide to get strict.
Clearly there’s a lesson here for Napoli fans though. If you have to misbehave, you should stick to outright, clear as day racism because Platini and Co can’t be arsed punishing that properly.
