Juventus punished for fans' chants
Juventus have been handed a partial stadium ban for "discriminatory chants" aimed at Napoli on Sunday.
The ban -- suspended for one year -- was handed down after a section of Juventus fans were heard using offensive terms during the 2-0 win over their Serie A rivals.
The sanction has, however, been suspended for a year with the caveat that it will be imposed with a further penalty should Juventus supporters reoffend.
A statement published on legaseriea.it read: "Juventus fans located in the first and second tiers of the south stand sang the following chant at 1440 CET - 'Wash them with fire, Vesuvius wash them with fire.'
"Between the ninth and 10th minutes and between the 64th and 65th minutes the same fans sang 'What a smell, even the dogs run away when the Neapolitans arrive. Oh, victims of cholera and earthquakes, you never wash yourselves'"'
The same threat of stadium closure has already been issued to Italian clubs AC Milan, Inter Milan, Roma and Torino this season as the Lega and Italian Football Federation (FIGC) seek to crack down on "regional" discrimination, as well as the racist abuse that continues to plague football on the peninsula.
