Serie A side, AS Roma have been charged by Uefa after some of their fans were heard making “monkey chants” towards Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.
The incident occurred in Wednesday’s Champions League Group C tie which ended 3-3 at Stamford Bridge.
The 24-year-old Rudiger, who moved to Chelsea from Roma in the summer, came on as a 77th-minute substitute during the game.
