Struggling Serie A side Brescia Calcio have been hit with a 10,000-euro fine by the league's governing body after a section of the home fans chanted at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti last Friday as the visitors secured a 1-2 win.

The Italian league's disciplinary commission fined the northern based outfit for: "vulgar, insulting and repeated chants from its supporters against those of the opposing team" in last Friday's Serie A clash.

The country is experiencing the highest European casualty rate relating to the Covid-19 virus with the situation heavily impacting on the domestic football league with six Serie A games set to be staged behind closed doors this weekend and Thursday's Europa League clash between Inter and Ludogorets to be played behind closed doors at San Siro.

Brescia's hard-core active supporters later apologised via statement:

"We realise that we have made a mistake since our country is facing the possible development of this disease and we apologise to the Italian families involved," it read.
