The Serie A sporting judge cited a racist chant, an ``insulting'' chorus and an ``offensive'' banner unfurled during Sunday's match.

The club has insisted it was committed to ending racism at its matches and complained that it was being singled out. Juventus says in a statement on its website that such penalties should be applied ``elsewhere with the same accuracy and co-operation from clubs.''

Juventus won after Arturo Vidal converted a second-half penalty when Milan's reserve goalkeeper Marco Amelia tripped Kwadwo Asamoah. Milan was without suspended Mario Balotelli.
