Lazio have been ordered to play next European home game behind closed doors as punishment for the racist behaviour of their supporters in a UEFA Cup tie last month.
The stadium ban follows racist abuse and crowd disturbances – including missile throwing and flares being set off, clashes with police and a stabbing incident – during the UEFA Cup match against FK Partizan on 25 November.
This is the third time Lazio have been penalised for racism offences,. Partizan, meanwhile, were fined €5,200 after their fans threw flares during the 2-2 draw at the Stadio Olimpico.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, have been fined €9,780 following the racist behaviour of some of their supporters during last month’s UEFA Champions League game with Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
Some Real supporters were seen making racist chants at the German club’s black players. Some fans were also seen making Nazi salutes.
A number of other clubs have also received fines. Olympiakos have been fined €65,000 after their fans set off flares and threw missiles during their Champions League home match against Deportivo La Coruña.
CSKA Moscow were fined €22,800 penalty for the throwing of missiles at players and lighting of flares during their Champions League home tie against FC Porto on 24 November.
Also, Club Brugge KV have received a €13,000 fine for racist abuse by some of their supporters towards Utrecht players during the sides’ UEFA Cup clash on 25 November.
