Moscow - Russian club FC Rostov is likely to face a UEFA disciplinary case for fan racism after a banana was thrown onto the field during a Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven.

The FARE Network, which monitors racist incidents for UEFA, says the banana was thrown about eight minutes into Wednesday's 2-2 draw.

The banana remained on the field for at least 15 minutes. FARE director Piara Powar says the body will send an official notification to UEFA.

Non-white players, including former Brazil defender Roberto Carlos, have been taunted with bananas during Russian league games in recent years.

Rostov's home city of Rostov-on-Don will host games during the 2018 World Cup.
