Lazio and Spurs fined by UEFA

Lazio have been fined 120,000 and Spurs 6,300 by UEFA following crowd disturbances during their Europa League match.

Lazio have been told that they will have to play a European match behind closed doors if there is a repeat of their fans' racist behaviour - though that punishment has been suspended for a "probationary period of two years."

Spurs' fine came for what UEFA only described as "crowd disturbances."

Lazio were fined 77,000 for racist abuse during the home game with Spurs on 22 November last year.

In addition the Rome club were fined 42,000 for the "racist conduct of their supporters, ignition of fireworks and incidents of a non-sporting nature" during the match at Maribor in Slovenia the same competition on 6 December.

Maribor were fined 14,000 for the behaviour of their fans and for poor organisation.

All three clubs have three days to appeal.
