Lausanne: Marseille and Napoli have been hit with punishments over the behaviour of their fans in the recent Champions League games between the pair, UEFA said Friday.

UEFA`s disciplinary committee fined French giants Marseille a total of 58,000 euros (USD 78,600) after their fans let off flares and threw objects on to the pitch both during their side`s home fixture at the Velodrome on October 22 and the return at Naples`s San Paolo on November 6.

Napoli were fined a total of 55,000 euros after their fans also let off flares at both matches.

Napoli won both games, knocking Marseille out of the competition.

Turks Galatasaray were hit with a 100,000 euros fine for trouble by their fans at a match in Copenhagen on November 5 while Ajax were hit with a 20,000-euro penalty due to incidents during their clash with Celtic on October 22.
