Nyon, Switzerland — UEFA has charged Legia Warsaw over a banner criticizing the club's disputed exit from the Champions League.
Legia fans displayed a large image of a pig imposed on a UEFA badge and the slogan "Because Football Doesn't Matter, Money Does."
The banner, surrounded by lit flares, was shown before Legia's Europa League playoff victory against Aktobe of Kazakhstan last Thursday.
UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge the case on Thursday.
Legia was eliminated from the Champions League third qualifying round for fielding a suspended player against Celtic. UEFA awarded the Scottish side a 3-0 second-leg win that saw them advance.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport denied Legia's urgent appeal to be reinstated and the Polish club is now seeking compensation from UEFA for lost earnings.
