Lazio, Tottenham face UEFA probe

UEFA have opened disciplinary proceedings against Tottenham and Lazio relating to incidents during their 0-0 Europa League draw last November.

Lazio supporters appeared to have mocked Spurs’ Jewish fans with obscene chants during the match while Tottenham were involved in separate crowd disturbances in and around the ground.

A statement from UEFA reads: “UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against S.S. Lazio. Charges relate to the alleged racist behaviour of Lazio supporters during the Italian club’s 0-0 UEFA Europa League Group J draw against Tottenham Hotspur FC in Rome on 22 November 2012.

“Proceedings will also be instigated against S.S. Lazio for throwing of missiles and/or fireworks by their supporters, incidents of a non-sporting nature, late team arrival at the stadium, and late handling of the team sheet.

“UEFA will also commence proceedings against Tottenham Hotspur FC, who face charges related to crowd disturbances.

“These cases will be discussed by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on 24 January 2013.”

The match between the two sides ended goalless in the Stadio Olimpico in Rome with Hugo Lloris making a string of excellent saves to earn Andre Villas-Boas’ side a valuable draw in the Italian capital.
