BATE Borisov get stadium ban for fans' racist taunts

Belarus champions BATE Borisov have been ordered to play one match behind closed doors after fans hurled racist abuse at Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazilian striker Luiz Adriano.

European football's governing body UEFA announced the sanction on Wednesday for the fans' "racist behaviour" during the Champions League match on October 21.

BATE will have to play their next Group H home match against FC Porto on November 25 in an empty stadium.

Adriano scored five goals in Ukrainian champions Shakhtar's 7-0 demolition of BATE, including the fastest four-goal haul ever recorded in the Champions League, in 17 first-half minutes.

The Ukraine national federation were also brought to book over racist incidents by fans in their 1-0 Euro2016 qualifying group victory over Macedonia in Kiev, and will have to play their next home match behind closed doors, UEFA ruled.

Crowd trouble in Borussia Dortmund's 4-1 Champions League win over Turkish side Galatasaray saw both clubs fined.

Dortmund will have to pay 32,000 euros ($40,000) and Galatasaray 72,000 (90,000) with the Turks also having to discuss compensation for damage to seats at the Westfalenstadion, which will cost the German club an estimated 30,000 euros to replace.

The match had to be halted twice in the second-half after away fans hurled fireworks on to the pitch, then threw a firework into a block of home fans.

Galatasaray had already been fined 50,000 euros ($62,000) by UEFA after their fans lit flares in their defeat at Arsenal last month.
