Torpedo get home fan ban

Russian Premier League team Torpedo Moscow must play two home games in an empty stadium after fans displayed a banner with a Nazi symbol, the club's fourth racism-related punishment this season.

Torpedo fans showed the flag during a 3-1 win over Arsenal Tula on Sunday.

The punishment will not take effect until May because Torpedo is already required to play its next two home games behind closed doors for a separate incident in which fans abused Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk with monkey chants.

Sunday's game was also marred by crowd violence.
