Joel had been trying to get water to winger Marc Albrighton, who was suffering from stomach cramps, but had encroached into Atletico boss Diego Simeone’s technical area.

Atletico complained and Joel was asked to leave the dugout by referee Jonas Eriksson. Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare insisted afterwards it had been a genuine mistake.
Atletico, who won the first leg thanks to Antoine Griezmann’s penalty, have also been charged under article 38 of UEFA’s safety and security regulations because of a blocked stairway.
