Two soccer fans were killed and 49 were injured in violent clashes among fans of the same soccer team in the western Moroccan city of Casablanca, according to Morocco's official news agency.

The state news agency MAP said it's unclear why the deadly violence erupted Saturday evening after Raja Casablanca beat Chabab Rif Al Hoceima 2-1.

Raja, the second ranking soccer team in the North African country after rival Wydad Casablanca, was sanctioned Sunday morning by the Royal Federation of Moroccan Football, which said it ''deplored'' the violence, reported The Associated Press.

Raja and its supporters have previously been sanctioned, along with Wydad and its supporters, for repeated bouts of violence during and after matches that have left dozens injured, including police.

The team will not be allowed an audience for its next five games, and must pay a fine of 100,000 Moroccan dirhams (9,200 euros).
