Milan: Genoa`s Serie A home match with AC Milan on Sunday will be played behind closed doors after local authorities had a late change of heart about possible violence.

Italy`s anti-hooligan body initially said Milan followers would be able to visit Genoa for the first time since a home fan was killed during trouble between the two sets of supporters 15 years ago.

However, Genoa`s website said city officials had now decided to ban all fans following threats of potential violence from some supporters.
