Juventus fined for racist chants

Juventus have been fined €30,000 after a group of fans directed racist abuse at AC Milan players during Sunday night's Serie A game.

The Lega Serie A's disciplinary committee has taken exception to chants directed at black members of the Milan team, including striker Mario Balotelli, who was not playing due to suspension.

A statement published on read: "A fine of 30,000 euros is issued to Juventus because fans, in the 26th minute of the first half, directed expressions of racial discrimination towards an opposition player.

"In the second minute of the second half, there were insulting chants directed at an opposition player not deployed on the field.

"Finally, between the 38th and 41st minutes of the first half, a large banner was unfurled displaying outrageous content."
