Dinamo Zagreb punished for racism

Dinamo Zagreb have been fined and ordered to close part of their stadium for tonight's Champions League qualifier against FC Sheriff by UEFA as punishment for racist chanting by their fans during last week's European match against Luxembourg side CS Fola Esch.

The Croatian champions will have to close the east section of the Maksimir stadium and pay a fine of 25,000 euros (£21,700) following incidents during the 1-0 home win over Fola in their Champions League second qualifying round second leg.
