Brescia stadium ban for Pjanic abuse

Brescia have been given a suspended stand closure for one game after their fans racially abused Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic.

Brescia supporters were heard calling Pjanic ‘zingaro’ - or ‘gypsy’ in English - before he scored the winning goal at the Rigamonti on Tuesday evening.

In a surprising turn of events, the FIGC has decided to issue the newly-promoted side with a closure of its curva for one game without launching an investigation.

However, the ban is suspended for one year, in the event their supporters are found guilty of more racial abuse.

On the other hand, no charges have been handed out to Cagliari, Verona and Atalanta, whose fans aimed monkey chants at Romelu Lukaku, Franck Kessie and Dalbert.
