PRAGUE (AP) - Viktoria Plzen says it will play its Europa League game against Roma with its stadium partly closed because of racist behavior of some of its fans.

Plzen says the punishment by UEFA comes after the incidents in a Champions League playoff game against Ludogorets Razgrad on Aug. 23.

The Czech club says two sections of its stands popular among its hard core fans will remain closed for the Sept. 15 game.

The Czech champions say fans might be banned completely from Europa League games in Plzen if such incidents happen again.
