CSKA Moscow set to learn 'racism' fate
Tuesday 29 October 2013
CSKA Moscow should learn today if they will have their ground partially closed for their next Champions League game because of alleged racist chanting towards Yaya Touré.
The Manchester City midfielder claimed he was the target of monkey chanting from home fans inside the Khimki Arena during last Wednesday's Champions League tie in the Russian capital.
The 30-year-old reported the incident to referee, Ovidiu Hategan, during the game and Uefa responded the next day by charging the Russian club with the "racist behaviour of their fans".
A seven-strong panel, chaired by Austrian Dr Thomas Partl, will meet at Uefa's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, to decide whether Touré was abused.
