The German club face four charges, including crowd disturbances and setting off fireworks, while the North Londoners face a lesser charge over blocked stairways.

The game was delayed by an hour as many thousands of away fans arrived at Emirates Stadium without tickets, causing security problems including a number of unruly attempting to rush the gates before kick-off in an attempt to gain entry.

Conservative estimates number Cologne fans in the ground at around 11,000 despite the German club being given a ticket allocation of 2,900.

The Islington Gazette talked to a supporter who said £17 tickets had been sold to Germans for more than £100.

This case is set to be heard by the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on Thursday, September 21.
