Sporting lodge protest over result

The 4-3 home win in the Champions League is being disputed by Sporting CP. Last season's runners-up in the Portguese top flight aren’t happy with the result on Tuesday night (October 21st) and have therefore lodged a protest to UEFA.

Sporting CP have requested to the European football association that the game be replayed and have alternatively requested payment of the premium for a draw. 

The visitors are protesting a penalty given in injury time, which they believe was unfairly awarded. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting then converted from the spot to give the Royal Blues a 4-3 win.

FC Schalke 04 have been asked by UEFA to give a statement and it will be made shortly under consideration of the protection of the club's interests.
