Spartak Fined Again




MOSCOW -- Spartak Moscow was penalized by the Russian Professional Football League again Tuesday for misbehavior by its fans.


The league fined the Russian champion 5,000 rubles ($200) after fans caused trouble during last month's premier division match against Shinnik Yaroslavl.


Six weeks ago, Spartak was ordered to play behind closed doors at the 84,000-seat Luzhniki Stadium after its fans clashed with riot police in Ramenskoye, 40 kilometers outside Moscow.
