Barcelona have been fined over the ecstatic celebrations at the end of their incredible Champions League comeback victory over Paris St Germain earlier this month.

Uefa’s control, ethics and disciplinary body imposed a fine of €19,000 for the pitch invasion that followed Sergi Roberto’s 95th-minute goal, which secured a 6-1 victory on the night after a 4-0 defeat in the first leg in Paris.

The fine was also issued for the “improper conduct” of Barcelona’s players, with five bookings picked up by Luis Enrique’s men during the game.

No team in Uefa club competition history had ever successfully overcome a 4-0 first-leg deficit previously.
