MILAN (AP) -- Inter Milan has been ordered by the Italian league to play its next home match with one end of San Siro closed as punishment for fan racism.

A 1-1 tie between Inter and Juventus on Saturday was marred by Inter fans targeting two Juventus players with racist chants.

It's the third time this Serie A season that a squad will play with part of its stadium closed due to racism.

Lazio was punished in its opener for supporters' actions in the Italian Super Cup against Juventus and Roma was penalized in the second round for racism toward AC Milan players at the end of last season.

Inter was also fined 15,000 euros ($20,000).

Inter's next home match is against Fiorentina on Sept. 26.
