Obscene chants from Sevilla fans targeting former favourite Sergio Ramos earned the La Liga team a one-match partial stadium closure, Spanish football authorities ruled on Wednesday.
The incidents took place at a highly charged January 16 La Liga encounter when Sevilla ended Real Madrid’s 40-match unbeaten streak at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
It was the third game in 10 days between the sides including a home and away Copa del Rey clash decided by a dramatic late Ramos header.
In a volatile atmosphere Sevilla came from 1-0 down with five minutes to go to defeat Madrid 2-1 deep in injury time as passion from the terraces spilled over into hate chants against the charismatic Ramos.
Sevilla will have to close one stand as punishment.
