Police stepped in as ex-City ace Savic chased Grealish into the tunnel.
Sime Vrsaljko also appeared to spit at Walker and City boss Guardiola was showered in beer by Atletico yobs.
Uefa will investigate the events — and Savic has blown his chance of a last-minute invitation to the club’s 2011-12 title reunion next month.
