Nyon - UEFA has punished Romanian champion Steaua Bucharest for racist behavior by its fans for the third time this season.

UEFA says Steaua must play its next two home matches in the Champions League or Europa League in an empty stadium.

Steaua leads the Romanian league by seven points, and could enter next season's Champions League in the second qualifying round.

UEFA says Steaua fans showed a racist banner at a Europa League match against Dynamo Kiev at the National Stadium in Bucharest in December.

The club was fined €20,000, with other offenses included.

Steaua was previously fined €64,500 for racism and other offenses in a Champions League playoff against Ludogorets Razgrad.

The first racist incidents were at a qualifying round match against Stromsgodset of Norway.
