Real Madrid have been hit by a partial stadium ban by UEFA.

Real have been given a partial stadium ban by UEFA after racist incidents during their Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich.

The Bernabeu will be partially closed for a Champions League match next season, UEFA said.

"Following the charge of racist behaviour by Real Madrid supporters during the match (Article 14 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations), the Control and Disciplinary Body has ordered the partial closure of the Santiago Bernabeu for one match," a statement said.

"More specifically, sectors 120 and 122 of the stadium will be closed for the club's next UEFA competition home game. Real Madrid are obliged to display a banner with the wording 'No to Racism' in those sectors."
