Uefa has charged Valencia and Internazionale with improper conduct.
Uefa has charged Valencia and Internazionale with improper conduct following the brawl that marred Tuesday's encounter between the two sides.
Valencia progressed to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League on the away goals rule after Tuesday's clash at the Mestalla finished goalless.
The game was not the talking point, however, as a brawl erupted on the pitch before spilling over into the tunnel.
Inter defender Nicolas Burdisso suffered a broken nose after being punched by Valencia's David Navarro as the mood turned ugly on the final whistle.
Uefa launched a probe on Wednesday morning and the governing body has acted swiftly by charging the two clubs with improper conduct.
Carlos Marchena and Navarro of Valencia and Burdisso, Ivan Cordoba and Maicon of Inter have all been charged with gross unsporting conduct, Uefa added.
"The Uefa Control and Disciplinary Body will deal with the case on Wednesday 14 March," read a statement on Uefa's website.
