    Moscow football team Spartak lost 3-1 to same-city rival Lokomotiv on Sunday in a Russian championship match played in an empty stadium due to crowd trouble at an earlier Spartak game.

    MOSCOW, November 3 (RIA Novosti) – Moscow football team Spartak lost 3-1 to same-city rival Lokomotiv on Sunday in a Russian championship match played in an empty stadium due to crowd trouble at an earlier Spartak game.

    Russian Premier League team Spartak offered a reward last week for information on fans who displayed a Nazi swastika flag at the match that led to a penalty of two games without spectators.

    The incident occurred the same day as European football’s governing body, the Union of European Football Associations, handed a partial stadium ban to another Moscow team, CSKA, for “racist” chanting by fans at a Champions League game.
