Bayern Munich have been handed a partial closure of their stadium for their Champions League quarter final clash with Manchester United after fans displayed a homophobic banner.

The signs were on display during the second leg of Bayern's Champions League last 16 tie with Arsenal on March 11, which saw the German champions progress 3-1 on aggregate.

The banner in question referred to Arsenal as "Gay Gunners" and featured a crude depiction of the club's German midfielder Mesut Ozil.

Uefa's control and disciplinary board has ordered the club to close the the section of the Allianz Arena where fans holding the banner were placed for the visit of David Moyes' side on April 9.

Uefa said in a statement that as a result of "Bayern supporters ... displaying of an illicit banner, the Uefa control and disciplinary body has decided to order the partial closure of the [stadium] in particular, the closure of sector 124 for Bayern's next Uefa competition home match, namely their Uefa Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester United on April 9."

Champions League holders Bayern have also been fined €10,000 for the "discriminatory behaviour" over the banner, which was aimed at German international Ozil.

Sky Sports suggest that the closure will not affect Manchester United fans travelling to Munich for the second leg clash.
