Champions League Violent Match

The Champions League soccer game between Chelsea and Barcelona ended up with a storm of bottles and trash thrown down to the players and the referee on the game field.

Chelsea will be fined due to �unsporting behavior� after collecting six cards during the match in Barcelona which final score was a 2 � 2 draw.

According to a UEFA spokesman, there is an automatic punishment for any team that gets five or more yellow cards in one game. But the amount of the fine will be established until the reports from referee Stefano Farina and UEFA delegate at the game, Wolfgang Thierrichter are ready.

The reports will be examined for comments about the behavior of players from both squads who regularly crowded the referee to push him to make any decisions.

But Chelsea isn�t the only one that is in trouble, Barcelona is too, as their fans started tossing bottles over the Chelsea players.

UEFA will wait to see if the referee Farina mentions Frank Rijkaard's post-match antics in his report or Jose Mourinho's elaborate touchline celebrations when Didier Drogba put the ball inside de frame to score the last goal that set the draw.

Now Barcelona is at risk of being the first title-holder to exit the Champions League in the group phase. The game was marked by 10 yellow cards for fouls, arguing and off-the-ball altercations.

Didier Drogba scored in the third minute of added time at the Nou Camp stadium yesterday. Deco and Eidur Gudjohnsen achieved the two goals for the Spaniard team and Frank Lampard scored Chelsea's other goal.
