MOSCOW RACISM BAN CUT
CSKA MOSCOW have had their punishment for racist behaviour by fans reduced on appeal by UEFA, meaning they only have to play one more Champions League game behind closed doors.
The Russian club were earlier this month ordered to play their next three European home matches in an empty Arena Khimki as punishment for the crowd trouble in a game away to Roma.
But UEFA yesterday decided to reduce it to just two games.
Manchester City visited Moscow last week in the first of those games, which means the Russian side now have only Roma on November 25 to play behind closed doors.
UEFA’s appeals body also ruled the initial fine of £157,000 should be reduced to £79,000.
