NYON, Switzerland (AP) UEFA awarded Serbia a 3-0 win over Albania on Friday but deducted the three points following the violence that broke out during their European Championship qualifier in Belgrade last week.

The game was abandoned before halftime after an Albanian nationalist banner was flown into the stadium by a drone, triggering fighting among players and fans.

UEFA's disciplinary body ruled that the game be awarded to Serbia as a 3-0 forfeit but also deducted the three points gained by a win.
