Really nasty scenes at this match. Just shows how far the game has come in some countries and not in others.

The difference is quite droll:
The optimist sees the doughnut,
The pessimist sees the hole.

If the book isn't thrown at these tossers, then it is a complete joke, farce and also a laughing stock.

The decision rests with Michel Platini. So don't hold your breath.

If the punishment isn't severe they should kick off big time. I'll sound like a football fan on Talksport here, but I'm pretty sure they would clamp down heavily if it was England (and rightly so)

They are the main culprits. A football fan told me.

It is both disgraceful and entirely expected.

Serbian international sport seems to attract some very unpleasant people and nothing is done to stop them.

Genuinely horrible scenes. I hope UEFA / FIFA come down on the Serbian FA as strongly as possible, though sadly I don't suspect they will

No mention of any crowd trouble or racism in the match report on the UEFA website, apparently.

I think you are spot on. The red card will also be upheld.

It's certainly looking that way
