Inter Milan: Stadium partially closed for Milan derby

The Nerazzurri have been punished by the Lega Serie A and will have their north section of the stadium closed for two games - against Milan and Chievo on January 13, 2014.

Inter fans were found guilty of abusive chants directed at Napoli supporters during Inter's 4-2 loss in Naples on Sunday.

A statement from the Lega Serie A read: "Inter will also have to pay a fine of 50,000 euros for the geographically discriminatory chants by their fans towards Napoli supporters."

Inter's Curva Nord was already carrying a suspended sentence for abusive chants in the Nerazzurri's game at Torino on October 20.
