Atletico Madrid charged for far-right banner at Europa final

Europa League winner Atletico Madrid faces UEFA punishment for fans displaying a far-right banner at the final on Wednesday.
UEFA says Atletico faces charges for “racist behavior” and fans lighting fireworks when the case is judged on May 31.
Marseille faces several charges including crowd disturbances during the 3-0 loss to Atletico at Lyon.
Marseille fans also caused “acts of damage” at the home stadium of its big rival in the French league.
The French team also faces a fine for players returning late to start the second half.
 Thousands of Atletico Madrid fans took to the streets of the Spanish capital to celebrate the team’s third Europa League title.
Fans began heading to the Fountain of Neptune — the club’s traditional celebration spot — not long after the team defeated Marseille 3-0 in the final late Wednesday in Lyon.
Fans lit flares and chanted at the plaza through the early hours of Thursday.
The club is setting up official celebrations for Friday. The team is expected to parade through the central city before returning to the Fountain of Neptune.
Atletico also won the competition in 2010 and 2012.
