Genoa hit with €30,000 fine
Genoa have been hit with a €30,000 fine by the Lega Serie A following crowd trouble during Friday's 2-0 home defeat to AC Milan.
Genoa have been punished after a section of their supporters directed racist chants, shone a laser and attempted to throw objects at Milan players.
A statement published on the Lega's official website read: "A fine of €30,000 to Genoa for directing chants containing racially discriminatory language to a player of the opposing team in the 25th minute, for shining a laser at players of the opposing team and for throwing coins and lighters at a referee's assistant and the opposing goalkeeper in the 75th minute.''
It was not specified by the Lega which Milan player had been the target of racial abuse, although it is believed that the introduction of substitute Mario Balotelli may have drawn a negative reaction from the home fans.
Lazio, Juventus and Palermo have also received fines from the Lega's disciplinary committee for the behaviour of their supporters during this weekend's fixtures.
Lazio were fined €10,000 after four banners were unveiled insulting UEFA president Michel Platini during Sunday's home defeat to Fiorentina. Juventus were fined €4,000 after a number of fans sang insulting chants about an unnamed player from an unnamed club during their home clash with Catania, while Palermo were handed the same punishment after a bottle was thrown onto the pitch during a home defeat to Siena.
