UEFA cites Lazio over fans' alleged racist abuse against Tottenham in Europa League match

European soccer's governing body has cited the Italian club Lazio for "alleged racist behavior" by fans accused of chanting anti-Semitic abuse at Tottenham.

Lazio fans also displayed a "Free Palestine" banner at Olympic Stadium on Nov. 22 in the Europa League game. Tottenham draws fans from the Jewish community.

UEFA says Lazio faces a range of charges, including fans throwing things. Tottenham faces sanctions for "crowd disturbances." Lazio could be ordered to play a Europa League match in an empty stadium.

UEFA's disciplinary panel will judge the case Jan. 24.
