AS Roma supporters won't be following their team away from home for one European match next season due to the violence that occurred ahead of a Champions League semi-final against Liverpool in April.
On Tuesday, UEFA fined the Italian side €50,000 and issued a two-match ban on selling away tickets. However, the second match of the ban will be deferred under a probationary period of two years, the European governing body announced.
The charges stem from crowd disturbances outside of Anfield. Liverpool supporter Sean Cox suffered serious head injuries in an attack allegedly carried out by Roma fans.
The incident took place less than an hour before Liverpool beat Roma 5-2 in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final on April 24.

Cox underwent surgery in Liverpool before returning home to Ireland.
A pair of Roma fans, Filippo Lombardi (20) and Daniele Sciusco (29), were charged with violent disorder. Lombardi was also charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm.
