Arsenal have been fined €5,00 for a "field invasion" during the match, while Bayern must pay €3,000 for the throwing of objects by their fans.

"The charges against Arsenal FC were related to the field invasions by supporters," Uefa said in a statement.

"The charges against FC Bayern Munich were related to the throwing of objects."

Before the last-16 game at the Emirates, in which the English side were thrashed 5-1 to lose 10-2 on aggregate, fans of the German giants held up a banner reading, "Without fans football is not worth a penny," in protest at the cost of ticket prices.

In the early stages of the game they threw a toilet roll onto the pitch causing the game to be briefly delayed.

Towards the end, there was another hold-up when a supporter evaded stewards to run onto the playing area.
