UEFA directs Lazio to play matches in empty stadium

February 28, 2013 10:11 IST

Lazio say they have been ordered to play their next two home games in European competition behind closed doors after their fans were again found guilty of racist behaviour by UEFA.

"Two games behind closed doors, it's incredible," Lazio president Claudio Lotito told Italian broadcaster Rai.

UEFA have yet to make a statement.
