Lyon and Besiktas have been handed suspended two-year bans by UEFA after crowd trouble marred the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

Last Thursday's match at Parc Olympique Lyonnais was delayed by 45 minutes due to fans from the lower tier entering the field after objects were thrown at them from within the group of travelling supporters in the tier above.

Besiktas fans also broke through segregation and fought with home fans.

UEFA charged Lyon in relation to crowd disturbances, setting off fireworks, stairways being blocked, insufficient organisation and field invasion by supporters after Jeremy Morel capitalised on an error from Besiktas goalkeeper Fabri to snatch a 2-1 win.
