Juventus have been fined 5000 euros by the Italian Football League after a group of young supporters repeatedly insulted Udinese goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic during Sunday's match.

A total of 12,000 children under 13 filled the Juventus stadium at the weekend to watch the Serie A game against Udinese.

The club's initiative, which was applauded by many, prevented Sunday's game from being played behind closed doors.

Juve had been handed a stadium closure for that match as punishment for their fans' geographically discriminatory chants towards Napoli supporters in last month's game.

A statement from the Lega Serie A read: "Juventus have been fined 5000 euros for their very young supporters having repeatedly insulted a player of a rival team."

Brkic made a number of fine saves throughout the game before Fernando Llorente scored the winner in stoppage time to hand Juve a 1-0 triumph.

The win lifted Juve three points clear at the top of Serie A.

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
