Inter Milan's shameful record of hooligan activity means the Italian club is in danger of becoming the first club to be kicked out of the Champions League. UEFA's disciplinary panel meets on Friday to pass judgement on the derby quarter-final at the San Siro which was abandoned after AC Milan's goalkeeper Dida was struck and burned by a flare thrown during a barrage of missiles from Inter fans.
The disciplinary body will look at the club's record over the previous five years and take into account that in 2001 Inter were ordered to play two European home matches away from the San Siro and fined 35,000 (75,000 Swiss francs) after similar crowd trouble at their UEFA Cup tie with Spanish side Alaves. There is a precedent for expulsion too after Fiorentina, another Italian club, were thrown out of the UEFA Cup in 1998 after a home-made explosive device hurled from the crowd during the match against Swiss side Grasshopper injured the fourth official and caused the match to be abandoned.
