CAS updates Atletico punishment

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Thursday halved a fine for Atletico Madrid to 75,000 euros (94,000 USD) after its fans chanted racist insults during a UEFA Champions League fixture against Marseille last month.

But the court said that Atletico's upcoming Champions League match in their Vicente Calderon stadium against PSV Eindhoven on 26 November will still have to be played behind closed doors.

European football's top governing body UEFA had initially imposed a two-match spectators ban and a fine of 150,000 euros, but then reduced it to a one-match ban.

Atletico is still appealed the ruling to CAS.
