Arsenal players and coaches were visibly upset in the aftermath of Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Barcelona, and one of each has been charged with improper conduct by UEFA.
Manager Arsene Wenger and midfielder Samir Nasri were both charged for for their postmatch comments to referee Massimo Busacca. The Swiss referee controversially sent Robin Van Persie off with his second yellow card in the 56th minute after he elected to shoot after being whistled for offside.
The match was level at 1-all and Arsenal was a goal up on aggregate at the time of the red card, and Barcelona tallied twice with the man advantage to advance to the quarterfinals.
Wenger and Nasri will have their case heard a week from Thursday.
Here are a few more notes from Europe:
TWO MORE SPOTS IN UCL QUARTERFINALS ON THE LINE
Two teams will join Barcelona and Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday. Tottenham looks to hold its 1-0 lead over AC Milan, but it will have to do so with Gareth Bale likely coming off the bench.
Schalke hosts Valencia in the day's other match, carrying a small advantage after tallying an away goal in a 1-1 draw in their first leg in Spain.
Both matches are slated for 2:45 p.m., with Tottenham-AC Milan being shown on Fox Soccer Channel and Schalke-Valencia broadcast on Fox Soccer Plus and FoxSoccer.tv.
GERRARD OUT FOR EUROPA MATCH
Liverpool will be without Steven Gerrard for its Europa League Round of 16 first leg at Sporting Braga. Gerrard has been dealing with a groin injury and did not travel with the team.
RANGERS RECEIVES INJURY BOOST
Kyle Lafferty and Vladimir Weiss will be available for selection ahead of Rangers' Europa League Round of 16 first leg against PSV Eindhoven.
Both players have missed the last two matches and will help the Rangers attack in what has the makings of a high-scoring tie.
What sort of punishment do you think Wenger and Nasri deserve? Who do you see advancing to the quarterfinals today? Do you think Liverpool will struggle without Gerrard? Do you see Rangers or PSV moving on in Europa League?
