UEFA awards Serbia 3-0 win over Albania following violence in Belgrade but deducts 3 points

UEFA has awarded Serbia a 3-0 win over Albania but deducted the three points following the violence that broke out during their European Championship qualifier in Belgrade last week.

The game was abandoned after an Albanian nationalist banner was flown into the stadium by a drone, triggering fighting among players and fans.

UEFA announced Friday that the game was awarded to Serbia as a 3-0 forfeit but also deducted the three points gained by a win.

Serbia was also ordered to play its next two home matches in a closed stadium with no fans.

Both federations were fined 100,000 Swiss Francs ($105,000).

UEFA said the decisions can be appealed.
