Last year's Champions League victor Liverpool have been fined 10,000 euros after their fans invaded the pitch during their 4-3 win against Salzburg at Anfield Stadium on October 2, Goal.com reported.

And City have been ordered to pay £13,500 for the throwing of objects by their fans in the home match against Dinamo Zagreb earlier this month.

The Hoops may have received a fine of around £10,000 for the use of flares at the recent Europa League clash but it still wasn't the biggest punishment dished out to a British club on the day. Acts of damages and crowd disturbances from the travelling fans at Mestalla has resulted in a ban from selling tickets for their trip to Chelsea on November 11, while they must contact Valencia within 30 days and agree compensation.

Both clubs had suspended punishments after incidents last season activated for the repeat offenses. UEFA also put Ajax on probation for another year.

Eintracht must compensate Vitoria Guimaraes for damage in Portugal on 3 October.

These fines have been imposed by the UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body.

Dinamo were fined 20,000 euros ($20,250) and told to compensate City.

The charge followed alleged racist chanting from supporters during Lazio's 2-1 Europa League victory over French club Rennes on October 3 at Stadio Olimpico.
