Football: Juventus fined for racist chanting
A leaders Juventus have been fined 30,000 euros (US$39,400) and warned about the future conduct of their fans after they made racist chants during Wednesday's 2-1 win at home to Lazio.
Chants were heard on five occasions during the match but the club and other supporters tried to silence the offenders, Serie A said in a statement.
Juventus were forced to play a game behind closed doors three years ago after then-Inter Milan player Mario Balotelli was racially abused.
Last October, Italy’s Inter Milan was also fined 10,000-euros after racist chanting.
