Juventus have been fined 30,000 euros ( �25,685) after a section of fans directed racist abuse at AC Milan players during their Serie A game.

The Lega Serie A’s disciplinary committee has taken exception to chants directed at black Milan players, including Mario Balotelli, who was not playing due to suspension.

A statement published on legaseriea.it read: “A fine of 30,000 euros is issued to Juventus because fans, in the first half, directed expressions of racial discrimination towards an opposition player.

In the second half there were insulting chants directed at an opposition player not deployed on the field. Finally, between the 38th and 41st minutes of the first half, a large banner was unfurled displaying outrageous content.”
