UEFA originally stated they would announce their decision on proceedings against Lazio by Thursday, but they have now brought forward the case.

There have been continuous problems with a group of followers of the Serie A outfit and there are fears stict sanctions could now be imposed which may result in the match against the Hoops being played behind closed doors.
