Croatian champions severely punished

At the start of 2019-20 season (from second qualifying round for the Champions league), the following club will play on an empty stadium. Yesterday the European football organization penalized the Croatian champions with 67.000 euros together with 2 matches without spectators, whom one of them is on the waiting list in a period of 24 months.
The reason for this decision is the inappropriate racist behavior of Dinamo Zagreb supporters, throwing fireworks and various objects onto the pitch plus blocked stairways against Benfica of last 16 phase, first leg of the Europa league this March at the Croatian capital. For the last three cases the club is ordered to pay 47.000 euros plus additional 20.000 euros who are for the xenophobic conduct. On top of that, one duel has to be played without fans. However, if similar incidents are repeated at the next two years the second European match will be automatically activated and played in the same manner.
