UEFA receives referee's report from Chelsea semi

LONDON -- UEFA will decide next week whether to take action against Chelsea players for their behavior toward the referee after Wednesday's contentious Champions League semifinal against Barcelona.

UEFA said Friday it has received both the referee's and delegate's report from the game and will review the Chelsea players' actions both during and after the final whistle at Stamford Bridge. It said it will decide on possible sanctions "in the course of next week."

Chelsea players were furious that Tom Henning Ovrebo waved off several penalty appeals before Barcelona scored a stoppage-time equalizer to secure a 1-1 draw.

That result sent the Spanish club to the Champions League final against Manchester United on away goals.
