Penalties after second round of qualifying matches

Last week UEFA has punished two European clubs in different competition.
Playing on the first and only (so far) strange qualifying day in the Champions league - Friday, was not good for Linfield, who lost their first leg game against Celtic and later received a punishment. For throwing objects onto the pitch and fans invasion after the game, the Northern Irish champions have to close one sector of their pitch in the next European match and financially are fined 10.000 euros. However, 5 days later disciplinary action was opened against Celtic as well. Again the Scottish champions are going to be fined because in the return leg in Glasgow their fans spread a flag of masked soldier of Irish Republican Army. Penalties for this omission will be known this Friday.
On 13 July there was an unsolicited behavior on one match at the Europa league tournament. Last Friday the organization has send Hajduk a 'greeting card', after the team has qualified for the next phase. The Croatian club has to pay amount of 55.000 euros or: 50.000 for racist behavior from their own spectators plus 5.000 euros for throwing objects in a game against Levski Sofia. The team from Split has announced it will lodge a complaint.
