Hajduk to play in empty stadium
Croatian club Hajduk was fined and ordered to play two games in an empty stadium after hooligan incidents last weekend, including a masked man chasing the referee with a metal bar. The game between Hajduk and Rijeka on Saturday was interrupted twice over inappropriate chants, flares and the intruder. The intruder was finally confronted by police and escorted away as missiles were hurled at him from the crowd.
