Juventus were hit with a 20,000 euro fine by league bosses Thursday as Inter Milan pair Freddy Guarin and Alvaro Pereira and Roma's Nicolas Burdisso were handed one-game Italian Cup bans.

League champions Juve, who on Thursday announced the signing of Spain striker Fernando Llorente for July 1, were fined for fans' "discriminatory" songs during Tuesday's Italian Cup semi-final first leg against Lazio, which finished 1-1.

Inter pair Guarin and Pereira, as well as Roma's Burdisso, were handed one-match bans for incidents which occurred during Roma's 2-1 first leg win at the Olympic Stadium on Wednesday.

Lazio host Juventus in the semi-final second leg on January 29 while Inter host Roma in their second leg semi on April 17.
