Atletico Madrid was sanctioned by UEFA for racism against Man City

Uefa stated on Monday that Atletico Madrid would be required to seal a section of their stadium and show a large anti-racism placard during their Champions League return match against Manchester City on Wednesday.

European football officials have said that Atletico Madrid supporters engaged in ‘discriminatory behavior’ during the first leg of their quarterfinal match against Manchester City on Tuesday night.

The Spanish sports newspaper Marca published a video last week showing Atletico Madrid supporters doing the Nazi salute during a match.

Uefa has ordered Atletico Madrid to shut a portion of the stadium with at least 5000 seats and display a ‘#NoToRacism’ banner in the resulting void.

The Spanish champions were defeated 1-0 in the first leg on April 5 and will host City in the second leg on April 13 in Madrid.
