ASUNCION, Paraguay (AFP) – Nacional de Montevideo have received a three-match no-fan ban after some of their supporters mocked Chapecoense over the plane crash that wiped out most of the Brazilian club’s squad in 2016.

Conmebol made the ruling after Nacional fans sang songs and made gestures at Chapecoense’s stadium. The Brazilian club asked Conmebol to throw Nacional out of the competition, but the confederation instead banned the Uruguayan club’s fans from their next three games in the competition and fined the club $80,000 dollars.
