Lazio attempts to silence racist supporters
Lazio players wore "No racism" shirts during a Serie A game late on Tuesday, five days after some of their fans sang anti-Semitic chants during a home match against English side Tottenham Hotspur.
Italian media praised the Rome club's initiative on Wednesday, though some fans could still be heard taking part in racist chants.
Lazio fans were also suspected of attacking Tottenham fans in a pub the night before the Europa League game. Two fans of Roma, the other Serie A club from the capital, were arrested as investigations continue into an assault that left 10 English fans injured.
As Lazio on Wednesday beat Udinese 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico, a group of fans in the north curve sang chants comparing Roma fans to Jews, but were hissed to silence by supporters in other sectors of the stadium.
Fans im the north curve also held a banner proclaiming the innocence of two Catania fans who were found guilty of manslaughter in the 2007 death of a police officer during a Serie A game with Palermo.
Similar banners were shown during last weekend's AC Milan v Juventus and lower-division Lecce v Reggiana.
Earlier this month, lower-division player Pietro Arcidiacono was banned until the end of the season for wearing a shirt stating the innocence of one of the two Catania fans. It is believed that his ban will be reduced on appeal.
