Lazio stadium ban overturned

Uefa has reversed its ruling that the Biancocelesti would play against Apollon behind closed doors, with just the Curva Nord being closed instead
Uefa has backtracked on its decision to ban Lazio fans from the Stadio Olimpico for their upcoming Europa League clash with Apollon Limassol.

The Italian giants were originally due to play the clash with the Cypriots behind closed doors after signing offensive chants and displaying an insulting banner about Slavs during September's clash with Legia Warsaw.

However, the governing body has reversed its ruling, with the appeals committee deciding that only the Curva Nord will be closed.

Lazio were given a lengthy stadium ban in Uefa competition last term after racist taunts were heard during a match with Borussia Monchengladbach, which followed similar offences against Tottenham and Maribor.

Lazio currently sit atop of Europa League Group J, which also contains Turkish outfit Trabzonspor, with four points from their two games.
