ROME (AP) - Both Milan clubs as well as Roma and Torino have been given a suspended sentence of having sections of their stadiums closed for one match following insulting chants by the clubs' fans at the weekend.

Territorial chants of a discriminatory nature against Naples were heard during Roma vs. Napoli, AC Milan vs. Udinese and Torino vs. Inter Milan.

The four Serie A clubs were ordered to have various sections of their stadiums closed for one match, while Milan, Inter and Rome were also each handed a 50,000-euro fine. The sentences have been suspended for a year and will be added to any other punishment if a repeat offense occurs during that time.

It is the third time this season Milan has been in trouble for territorial chants after incidents against Napoli and Juventus.
