Valencia and Inter to find out fate after brawl

BrawlToday Valencia and Inter Milan will find out if they are to be punished by Uefa for the huge fisticuffs that ensued after their Champions League tie. Valencia duo Carlos Marchena and David Navarro and Inter's Nicolas Burdisso, Ivan Cordoba and Maicon were also charged with gross unsporting conduct. Uefa's Control and Disciplinary Body will decide any punishments, with a decision expected at about three this afternoon.

David Navarro can expect a kicking after breaking Burdisso's nose in the fight which broke out at full-time which saw Valencia progressing to the quarter-finals of the competition on away goals after a 0-0 draw in the second leg at the Mestralla. Of course, no-one really remembers the result  which was overshadowed by events on the final whistle which saw Inter coach Roberto Mancini calling Navarro "a coward". Mancini said: "Now I have seen the footage there's nothing else you can say about someone who throws a punch like that and runs away." [Mof Gimmers]
