MILAN (AP) - Hellas Verona has been ordered to play its next home match in Serie A with one end of its stadium closed because of fan racism.

The Italian league also fined Verona 50,000 euros (nearly $65,000) for racist chants directed at AC Milan and Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari, plus 3,000 euros (nearly $4,000) for fan insults toward the referee.

Milan won Sunday’s match 3-1.

Verona’s next home match is against Lazio on Oct. 30.

Also, the league fined Inter Milan 30,000 euros (nearly $40,000) for derogatory territorial chants directed by fans at Napoli supporters during a 2-2 draw.

Meanwhile, Roma fans have been barred from attending a match at Napoli on Nov. 1 following clashes that led to one fan’s death from a shooting before the Italian Cup final in May.
