Juventus risk partial stadium ban

Juventus have been given a one-match suspended ban of the Curva Sud after anti-semitic chants.

The Lega Serie A found that approximately 3,000 Bianconeri supporters in the Curva Sud sang a song “expressive of anti-semitic discrimination” repeatedly from the 34th to 36th minute.

The chant in question declared that people from Florence were “not Italian” but “a bunch of Jews”.

The Giudice Sportivo ruled that Juve will be given a one-match closure of the stand where the chants originated, “suspended for one year, with the caveat that if a similar violation is committed in the same period the suspension will be lifted, and the penalty will be added to that imposed for the new violation”.

The club was also fined €15,000 for anti-Southern songs directed at the visitors.

On the pitch, Felipe Dias of Udinese and Chievo’s Riccardo Meggiorini have had their one match bans confirmed after their respective red cards.

Milan midfielder Juraj Kucka, Palermo’s Edoardo Goldaniga, Fabrizio Cacciatore of Chievo, Atalanta pair Jasmin Kurtic and Andrea Masiello, and Juventus striker Alvaro Morata have also picked up a one game suspension after one yellow card too many.
