Lazio given partial stadium ban

Lazio have been hit with a partial stadium closure for their Europa League home match against Celtic after UEFA found them guilty of racist behaviour.

Lazio’s 2-1 win against Stade Rennais was investigated by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body, and it decided there were sufficient grounds to punish the Aquile.

The club will therefore have to host Celtic on November 7 with the lower half of the Curva Nord (sectors 46, 47, 48 and 49) closed off.

UEFA announce third tournament

UEFA have announced the 2021 Europa League Final will be in Sevilla, while a third club competition from 2021 is to be called the Europa Conference League.

It was confirmed in a UEFA Press conference this evening that the Video Assistant Referee technology will be available in all the Europa League knockout phase ties this season.

Not only is VAR not currently used in the Europa League group stage, but there aren’t even goal-line referees, so it has returned to the most old-fashioned version of officiating.
