Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne celebrates scoring against Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions league quarter-final on April 12, 2016

Paris (AFP) – Manchester City have been charged by UEFA after fans set off fireworks during Tuesday’s 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final at the Etihad Stadium.

Kevin De Bruyne’s 76th-minute goal sent City through to their first Champions League semi-final with a 3-2 aggregate win, but the Premier League side could face punishment from European football’s governing body.

“Disciplinary proceedings have been opened following the UEFA Champions League second-leg quarter final between Manchester City FC and Paris Saint-Germain played on 12 April in England,” read a statement from UEFA.

“Charges against Manchester City FC: – Setting off of fireworks – Art. 16 (2) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations.

“This case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 19 May,” it added.
