The club were handed an 11,000 euros ($12,300) fine by UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on Thursday for incidents during the 4-3 win over the German side at Anfield.

Liverpool were fined 57,000 euros by European soccer’s governing body on Tuesday over their fans’ misconduct, including illicit chanting, during the Europa League last-16 tie against Premier League rivals Manchester United.

UEFA has also charged Liverpool over their fans’ behaviour during the Europa League final defeat by Sevilla in Basel last week.
