NYON, Switzerland - Bayern Munich faces disciplinary action after fans displayed discriminatory and political banners at a Champions League match against Arsenal. Jesse Barfield Jersey . UEFA opened a case Wednesday against the defending champions, which will be judged by its disciplinary panel on March 20. The case involves alleged "discriminatory behaviour of their supporters" and "display of an illicit banner," UEFA said in a statement. A banner with the phrase "Gay Gunners," and a crude cartoon image of Arsenals German player Mesut Ozil was shown at the last 16 match in Munich on Tuesday. The English clubs nickname is the Gunners. A second banner with the slogans "Say No To Racism. Say Yes To Kosovo" was also displayed. UEFA rules prohibit discrimination and political statements at matches. Clubs are responsible for incidents at their own stadium. They can be fined and, in more serious cases, have sections of their stadium closed. Bayern advanced 3-1 on aggregate and any sanction could apply at its home match in the quarterfinals. Kosovo seceded from Serbia in 2008 but has been blocked from attaining full international recognition. FIFA has allowed its member countries to play friendly matches against the Kosovo mens national team following long-standing opposition from UEFA. Custom Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys . She was a pioneer. She did things on skis that made the birds take notice. Randal Grichuk Jersey . In the opener of the World Group first-round series, world No. 18 Kei Nishikori defeated Peter Polansky of Thornhill, Ont. ST. LOUIS -- Adam Wainwright bolted out of the dugout before the bottom of the ninth inning. No way was the St. Louis Cardinals ace coming out of this one. Wainwright persuaded manager Mike Matheny, a former four-time Gold Glove catcher who handled the right-handers warmup tosses before the ninth, to finish the game. Then he put the finishing touch on his NL-leading 15th win and fifth complete game for a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night. "Hes our horse," Matheny said. "Those are the kind of statements your ace loves to make. That was his game." Wainwright joked that the manager was out there to "size me up a little bit," and Matheny said the pitches had plenty of heat. "I like to do that, let them know that Im not tired and ready to battle for those last three outs," said Wainwright who had a key sacrifice fly. "Its always good to do that and I feel like our team needed it." Matt Hollidays 432-foot home run off Kris Medlen (10-12) snapped a sixth-inning tie for St. Louis, which took the first two games of a four-game set against the NL East leaders. Having already thrown 101 pitches, Wainwright was allowed to bat with the one out and the bases loaded in the seventh inning and hit a long sacrifice fly off Scott Downs for his third RBI of the season to make it 3-1. He then retired the side in order in the eighth and worked around a one-hit single to Chris Johnson in the ninth on a night when the Cardinals didnt have their closer. Edward Mujica was unavailable for the second straight game with back and neck pain that he believed was caused by working two innings three straight times. He felt much better after visiting a chiropractor, played catch before the game and said hed be ready Saturday. "I feel good but I didnt want to force it today," Mujica said. "Im much better than two days ago." Medlen singled to lead off the sixth and scored on Freddie Freemans second hit of the game and retired 12 in a row at one point. But he allowed Hollidays 17th homer on a liner deep into the left field stands. Hes lost his last two times out, including a relief appearance in a 15-inning game, and wasnt pleased about geetting taken out after 78 pitches. Dalton Pompey Jersey. "I thought I was cruising pretty good," Medlen said. "I hadnt had to battle yet but I wasnt given the opportunity, so I guess Im voicing the fact that I didnt appreciate that." The Cardinals lost three in a row at Atlanta to start a seven-game losing streak in late July that knocked them out of the Central lead and entered the night a game behind Pittsburgh. Wainwright (15-7) took one of the losses in that series, but the Brunswick, Ga., native is 7-2 against the Braves. Wainwright allowed a run on six hits with no walks and nine strikeouts, passing injured teammate Chris Carpenter for third on the franchise career list and putting him just six behind Dizzy Dean for second, and he has 16 career complete games. Hes worked seven or more innings seven straight starts and retired 10 in a row at one point. Yadier Molina had three hits with a pair of doubles to raise his NL-leading average to .337, five points ahead of the Johnson, who had a pair of singles. Molina doubled and Jon Jay singled to open the seventh and chase Medlen. Downs got a brief reprieve earlier in the inning when a wild pitch ricocheted back to catcher Brian McCann. The Braves Justin Upton was ejected in the sixth for arguing with home plate umpire Paul Nauert after a groundout. He believed hed been tossed because hed cursed himself leaving the box and "heard something I didnt say." "To be honest, if I cant get frustrated with myself and say what I want to myself, then its really sad," Upton said. "I have no clue what he heard and its just sad." NOTES: Braves SS Andrelton Simmons made an outstanding sliding catch on Kolten Wongs foul popup in the second. ... B.J. Upton snapped an 0-for-25 slump with a single in the second. ... Wainwright tied his career best for complete games in a season, also throwing five in 2010. He threw a season-high 128 pitches, second most in his career. ... Molina is batting .419 (13 for 31) with seven doubles in seven games since coming off the 15-day disabled list from a knee injury. The Cardinals are 6-1 in that stretch. ... Freeman is 12 for 27 (.444) during a six-game hitting streak. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
