Croatia’s Euro 2016 qualifier with Italy will be played behind closed doors after the hosts were punished the actions of fans versus Norway.

The decision serves as a punishment for alleged racist behaviour of some Croatia supporters during a 5-1 qualifying win in Zagreb on March 28.

Fans also set off fireworks and threw missiles during the encounter at the Stadion Maksimir.

In addition to playing the Italy game without the presence of spectators, the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) has also been fined €50,000 for the incidents.
