Juventus will have to play a home game behind closed doors after fans racially abused Inter striker Mario Balotelli in Saturday’s 1-1 Serie A draw.

“The sporting judge…considered that in the course of the game and on multiple occasions, fans of the home team, in various sections of the stadium, sang songs which included racial discrimination,” a league statement said.

“Juventus are therefore obliged to play one game behind closed doors.”

The league normally decides on disciplinary action on the Tuesday following weekend games but brought the announcement forward this time.

The statement, in conjunction with the Italian football federation, added that the abuse was deplorable and could not be justified as sporting passion.
