Cagliari have been fined 10,000 euros (£9,000) after their fans racially abused Juventus midfielder Mohamed Sissoko in Sunday's 2-0 win.

The Italian league said on Tuesday that the fine was limited because other supporters and the Sardinian club distanced themselves from the chants.

Juve were fined 20,000 euros last week after their fans sang a non-racist but offensive song about Inter Milan's black striker Mario Balotelli. Serie A leaders Inter travel to Juve on Saturday amid fears of further anti-Balotelli chants.
