European football's governing body UEFA has reduced Atletico Madrid's two-match stadium ban to just one-match played behind closed doors, the Spanish first division club said on Friday.
Atletico will therefore have to play their next Champions League home match — against PSV Eindhoven on November 26 — without any spectators in their Vicente Calderon stadium.
The punishment comes after misbehaviour by fans during their October 1 Champions League fixture against Marseille.
However Atletico coach Javier Aguirre will have to purge a two-match ban himself and the club must pay a fine of 150,000 euros.
