Lazio’s appeal on the conditional disqualification for a single match – in which a portion of the Curva Nord would be banned – has been rejected. The consequence initially came following the Biancocelesti’s victory over Milan at the San Siro back on April 24th; there were said to be racist chants directed towards Tiemoue Bakayoko of the Rossoneri, to which calcio fans worldwide did not take lightly. Below, the official press release of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).
