The teams attempted to play the Euro 2016 qualifier back at the end of March. Russia keeper Igor Akinfeev had to be stretchered off after being hit by a flare, and the game was eventually called off after a brawl involving players and staff. Throughout the game both sets of fans threw flares and other missiles.

The Montenegrin FA have been fined €50,000 and told to play their next home match behind closed doors. The Russian FA was fined the lesser amount of €25,000 and doesn’t have any restrictions on their next match.

Meanwhile, Croatia’s next qualifier against Italy will have to be played behind closed doors after supporters set off fireworks and displayed racist behaviour during their 5-1 victory over Norway.
