The Serie A judge made the decision Monday.

The southern end of the stadium will be closed against both Udinese on Dec. 1 and Sassuolo on Dec. 14 while the northern curve will be closed only against Udinese.

Juventus has been repeatedly punished for unruly fan behavior this season, and several other top-division clubs have faced similar punishment.

Juventus was also fined 50,000 euros ($67,000) and Napoli was fined the same amount for objects thrown by its fans.
