Rome: Lazio have been ordered to close four sections of their stadium for their next Europa League home game due to racist behaviour by the Italian club’s fans during a group stage match against Stade Rennais earlier this month.

European football’s governing body Uefa said in a statement that Lazio must also display a banner carrying the words #EqualGame with the Uefa logo on it for the match against Celtic on November 7.

The club were also fined €20,000 (Dh80,974) and given a suspended sentence of having to play one more match behind closed doors, contingent on there being no further racist incidents during a probationary period of one year.
