Another European game and another UEFA charge.

Liverpool have been charged by UEFA once again after a wonderful 4-3 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of Thursday's Europa League quarter-final. Jürgen Klopp's side secured a place in the Europa League semi-finals after fighting back from a seemingly irretrievable position against Thomas Tuchel's unbeaten side. Unfortunately, UEFA have taken a dim view over a flare that was let off in the Kop during an unlikely comeback.

This follows previous UEFA charges due to fan misconduct in the first leg of the quarter-final against Dortmund and the last-16 clash with fierce rivals Manchester United. It seems that Liverpool's progress in European competition will be accompanied by continuing to draw the unwanted attention from UEFA. Liverpool's second leg against Borussia Dortmund was almost miraculous, but once again there are unwelcome complications.

The charges will be dealt with a day after the Europa League final on 19 May by Uefa’s control, ethics and disciplinary body. What sanctions or disciplinary actions will be delivered is unknown, but with a growing list of charges, there might be trouble ahead.
