CSKA Moscow’s penalty following their fans’ racist chanting and violence in last month’s Champions League group stage opening loss at AS Roma has been reduced by Uefa.

The Russian champions were originally ordered to play their next three European home matches behind closed doors and fined €200,000 (£158,000).

The European football governing body’s Appeals Body met yesterday and decided to “partially uphold” CSKA appeal against the decision taken by the Uefa Control, Ethic and Disciplinary body.

The modified decision demands CSKA to now play two home Champions League games behind closed doors- starting with last week’s 2-2 draw at home to Premier League champions Manchester City.

Uefa said in its statement: “CSKA have been ordered to play their next three UEFA competition matches as host club behind closed doors. The latest is suspended for a probationary period of five years.

“The Russian team has also been fined €100,000 (£79,000).”

However, they are still not eligible to sell ticket to their supporters for their two remaining group stage away games- meaning there will be no visiting fans when they play at the Etihad Stadium next week Wednesday and at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena in December.
