NYON, Switzerland -- Paris Saint-Germain has been punished after disabled supporters of Chelsea were abused at a Champions League match.

Fan monitoring group Fare alerted UEFA that PSG fans "verbally abused and threw objects" at the visiting Chelsea group during a quarterfinal, first-leg match on April 2.

PSG was ordered by the UEFA disciplinary panel on Tuesday to close two sections of Parc des Princes at its next home match in the Champions League group stage.

"The sanction has been imposed for the discriminatory conduct of some Paris Saint-Germain supporters," UEFA said in a statement.

UEFA rules demand sanctions if fans, players or officials "insult the human dignity of a person or group of persons on whatever grounds."

The French champion won 3-1, but was eliminated after Chelsea won the return 2-0.

Fare also reported that Chelsea fans displayed a banner with a neo-Nazi symbol. UEFA has not announced any action.
