European football's crackdown against racist behaviour by supporters has continued with punishments for Croatian champions GNK Dinamo and Ukraine's Dynamo Kiev.

Last week, UEFA ordered 's Lazio, Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk and Czech side Slavia Prague to play their next home European ties in front of partially closed stadiums following racist chanting and other crowd disturbances in recent Europa League matches.

And on Monday, UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body ruled that GNK Dinamo's next two home games in European competition should take place behind closed doors, with the second of those games deferred for two years, while Dynamo Kiev were given the lesser sanction of a partial closure.
