Italian Serie A sie Lazio have been punished by the league body after fans made racist chants during Sunday’s 6-1 win over Sassuolo.
The racist chants were directed at the Sassuolo duo of Alfred Duncan and Claud Adjapong
The club will have a section of their stadium (Stadio Olimpico) closed for two league games.
According to the disciplinary report from the Serie A, “2,000 of the 5,449 occupants” of the Curva Nord stand were found guilty of “chants expressive of racial discrimination”. To this effect, the Curva Nord stand will be closed for the visit of Cagliari and Udinese on October 22 and November 5 respectively.
The November 5 home clash with Udinese was added with the capital club already serving a suspended sentence for the same offence after the Rome derby on April 30.
