Police didn’t specify whether the two fans were arrested after the Russian Premier League side’s match on Wednesday as reported by the Daily Mail, with the side set to potentially be punished further should UEFA find them guilty of trying to injure the referee.

If Jurgen Klopp’s side do end up playing Spartak behind closed doors, it’ll be interesting to see if the complete lack of atmosphere ends up having a say on the result of the match.
