PSV Eindhoven defeated their Spanish opponents on the night but lost 3-2 overall after Sevilla goalie Marko Dmitrovic was attacked by a pitch invader.
Luuk de Jong and Fabio Silva helped PSV come back from a 3-0 deficit in the first leg of the Europa League knockout stage play-off to score two goals.
But, Ruud van Nistelrooy’s team was unable to score a crucial third goal.
In response to a supporter approaching Dmitrovic and punching him, Uefa has now initiated a disciplinary procedure against PSV.
The Serbian goalie wrestled the pitch invader to the ground, and following the incident in the game’s dying minutes, stewards eventually escorted him away.
Dmitrovic, whose previous teams include Charlton Athletic, was able to continue as his team qualified for the round of 16.
It’s never pleasant to see this in sports, the Serbian international told reporters after the game. It shouldn’t occur, and from now on, I hope those responsible will receive just punishment.
He approached me from behind and shoved me. He was presumably upset with the outcome. He attempted to strike me, but I was able to grab him and hold him while waiting for security.
Jorge Sampaoli, the manager of Sevilla, continued, “It is quite terrible that what has occurred. This kind of behavior must stop, in my opinion.
PSV was recently penalized 40,000 euros (£35,300) by Uefa for the actions of their fans during their 1-0 Europa League group stage loss to Arsenal at the Emirates in October.
