AC Milan have been ordered to play their home Serie A match against Udinese behind closed doors after being charged with abusive chanting.
The charge relates to the club's 3-2 away defeat to Juventus at the weekend after fans were found guilty of using 'insulting' chants.
The San Siro side, who have confirmed they will appeal the decision, have also been fined €50,000 as well as having an empty stadium on October 20.
This is not the first charge of it's kind in Serie A this season, with the Italian FA intent on trying to reduce crimes of this nature.
Lazio were order to close part of their stadium at the start of the current season after alleged racist chanting from the fans.
The charge once again involved Juventus, during the Supercoppa final, with Udinese coincidentally the unlucky side who had to play the behind closed doors game.
Serie A fixtures will recommence after the Italian national side's 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Denmark and Armenia this week.
