Brighton are appealing a number of episodes and decisions that took place on Thursday night as the English side suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Roma in the Europa League Round of 16.

According to the latest report by The Athletic, Roberto De Zerbi’s club have contacted UEFA, informing the organization’s disciplinary body of a homophobic sign displayed by Roma fans at the Stadio Olimpico, allegedly held against Brighton supporters.

Additionally, Brighton also brought attention to an episode involving Roma fans targeting Brighton supporters with the use of bottles, coins and lighters.

Moreover, Brighton have also taken issue with Gianluca Mancini’s goal which they consider to have been offside.

Brighton’s report will be assessed by UEFA’s disciplinary body with Roma yet to comment on the matter.
