Real Madrid's game with Beyer Leverkusen was marred by racist chanting
Real Madrid have been fined 9,780 euros (6767) for their fans' racist behaviour during last month's Champions League game with Bayer Leverkusen.

Uefa instigated disciplinary proceedings following incidents at the Bernabeu on 23 November.

Leverkusen's black players were racially abused and some supporters were also seen making Nazi salutes.

The punishment took into account this was the first time such offences had occurred involving Real supporters.

Lazio will play their next European tie behind closed doors following racist behaviour by their fans.

The Italian side were punished for racist abuse and crowd disturbances, including missile throwing and flares being set off, clashes with police and a stabbing.

The incidents happened during the Uefa Cup match against FK Partizan on 25 November.

It is the third time Lazio have been penalised for race-related offences.

Lazio's Uefa Cup campaign is over, meaning the ban will carry over until they next qualify for Europe.

Partizan were fined 5,200 euros after their fans threw flares during the 2-2 draw at the Stadio Olimpico.
