Following the racial taunts made at Romelu Lukaku of Inter Milan by Juventus supporters, the club has received a one-game partial stadium suspension.

After Lukaku scored a stoppage-time penalty, earning Inter a 1-1 draw in Turin during Tuesday night’s Coppa Italia semi-final first leg, the Belgian attacker received a second yellow card for his celebrations in front of the home crowd.

At the end of the game, physical fights broke out between the two teams, leading to the dismissal of Inter captain Samir Handanovic and Juve midfielder Juan Cuadrado.

The Italian league judge punished Lukaku for the second leg of the semi-finals on April 26. While Cuadrado will miss three games, Handanovic will just miss one.

The lowest level of Juventus’ South Stand, which has about 5,000 seats, will be closed for their upcoming home game against league-leading Napoli on April 23, Serie A’s decided.
