Olympiacos will host Champions League opponents Manchester United in February with part of their stadium closed.

United will play the first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie against Olympiacos behind partially closed doors after the Greek club were punished by UEFA because of racist behaviour from their fans.

UEFA said the sanctions were imposed for 'the racist conduct of supporters, insufficient organisation, the setting-off of fireworks and the use of a laser' during the group stage match at home to Anderlecht on Dec. 10.

Olympiacos will have to close the lower tier of the north stand of their stadium for the opening game on February 25 and have also been fined 30,000 Euros.
