There were truly terrifying scenes during the game between Maribor and Spartak Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday as a projectile flare came close to hitting the referee.
The incident was caught on camera and you can see a) how far the flare traveled, b) how quickly it went and c) how close it was to hitting the referee.
it appears as if the flare came out of the Spartak end and UEFA sanctions are likely to follow.
