Inter hit with San Siro punishment

Created on Sept. 17, 2013 11:10 PM EST

Inter have been told to close San Siro's north end for one game after alleged racist chanting during the Serie A clash against Juventus.

Juventus players are believed to have been verbally abused in Saturday's 1-1 draw at San Siro, in which Antonio Conte's side came from behind to win a point.

A statement from the Serie A on Tuesday confirmed that Inter will be forced to shut the Curva Nord section of the stadium for the visit of Fiorentina on September 26. 

The organisation stated that "chants and noises of a racist nature were heard during both halves of the game" and that laser pens were used during the match. 

The club have also been fined €15,000 as part of the punishment.

Inter are now the third club in the past two seasons to have been handed the punishment, with Lazio and Roma also forced to shut parts of their stadium for matches.
