Lazio have prevented instant punishment for his or her followers’ alleged racist abuse of AC Milan gamers in final week’s Coppa Italia conflict.

Milan claimed that monkey chants had been directed at midfielders Franck Kessie and Tiemoue Bakayoko of their 1-Zero semi-final second-leg residence defeat on April 24.

Serie A introduced its findings on Monday and prompt that 90 per cent of the travelling Lazio followers had been concerned within the chanting.

Nonetheless, the membership won’t immediately be sanctioned, with the specter of a one-match closure of the Curva Nord part of their Stadio Olimpico stadium suspended for a 12 months.

Lazio will solely face this punishment if there’s a repeat offence within the subsequent 12 months.

The Rome outfit had moved to distance themselves from any such incidents but in addition criticised sections of the media for “simplistic” reporting by which they “think about the whole Lazio supporter base collectively liable for acts carried out by a number of”.

Kessie and Bakayoko apologised after infuriating Lazio for holding up Francesco Acerbi’s shirt to have a good time their 1-Zero Serie A victory on April 13.

That incident got here after Bakayoko, on mortgage from Chelsea, appeared to take exception to Acerbi’s claims in a pre-match interview that there was “no comparability” between the standard of the groups.
