Lazio face UEFA action over anti-Semitism claims

UEFA is waiting to receive a report from the English Football

Association into alleged anti-Semitic chants directed by Lazio fans

at Tottenham during a Europa League match.

The English FA says its crowd control adviser who attended

Thursday’s game ”will provide an urgent report” to UEFA into

incidents at the Olympic Stadium in Rome.

UEFA says it is awaiting reports from the FA and its own match

delegate, Teuvo Holopainen of Finland.

The match was played amid tension following violent attacks on

Tottenham fans in a Rome city center bar late Wednesday.

UEFA fined Lazio (euro) 40,000 ($51,600) for its fans’ racist

behavior when the teams played in London in September.
