Nantes, the French league leaders, will have to pay a fine of only SFr5,000 (£2,600) rather than SFr18,000 for unruly behaviour by their supporters during their Uefa Cup match against Sion of Switzerland on 8 December. But Uefa's board of appeals ruled that the fine of SFr13,000 imposed on Sion should not be reduced. Sion were fined for "insufficient organisation" and because their fans let off fireworks. Nantes supporters threw objects, but Uefa said the fine against Nantes was reduced because "of the considerable efforts undertaken by the French club to take charge of its supporters".
