An Italian court has sentenced Juventus to a 10-point deduction.
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) announced on its official website on Feb. 22 (ET) that “the court has imposed a sanction of 10 points deduction on Juventus following a request from the Sports Guarantee Commission.”
Earlier, Juventus was investigated by the Turin Prosecutor’s Office for alleged bookkeeping. At first instance, Juventus and 11 other clubs involved were acquitted, but the prosecution appealed.
In the second trial, Juventus was docked 15 points and former Juventus president Fabio Paratici was suspended for 30 months.
Juventus appealed again to the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI), which sent the case back to the federal court for a new trial. The 15-point deduction was overturned and the case was retried at the Federal Court.
At the remand hearing on February 22, Juventus received a final 10-point deduction, dropping them from second to seventh in the standings. With 21 wins, six draws and nine losses, and 59 points, Juventus will not qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League with two games remaining. 안전놀이터
