Racist chants delay Roma clash

AC Milan, needing a win to clinch a Champions League playoff place, had Sulley Muntari sent off in the first half before drawing 0-0 at home with AS Roma last night in a match interrupted by racist behaviour from visiting fans.
Muntari was booked and then sent off in the 41st minute of an unsavoury match for grabbing the referee's arm as Milan players protested against a decision.
The result left third-placed Milan two points clear of Fiorentina, who earlier defeated Palermo 1-0 and condemned the Sicilians to Serie B next season.
Elsewhere a stoppage-time goal from Kelvin handed Porto a 2-1 win over Benfica that gives them a one-point lead over their Lisbon rivals.
