Roma has 3rd section of stadium closed for Inter match after more anti-territorial chants

  • Print

ROME - Roma has had a third section of its stadium closed for the upcoming Serie A match against Inter Milan after more anti-territorial chants.

Roma was ordered to close the sections behind both goals, where the ultras sit, for the league matches against Sampdoria and Inter as punishment for anti-Neapolitan chants by fans during an Italian Cup match this month.

However, further insults were clearly heard from another sector during Sunday's 3-0 victory over Samp and that area will also be closed for the match against Inter on March 1.

Roma was given a suspended sentence of a one-match ban in October. Torino and both Milan clubs were also handed suspended sentences at the time.

Roma is second in the Italian league, nine points behind Juventus, which has played a game more.
