Juventus received positive news ahead of their Europa League showdown tonight against Sporting.
Italy’s highest sporting court, The Italian Olympic Committee’s (CONI) Collegio di Garanzia, announced on its website that it has temporarily paused the 15-points penalty that was levied against Juventus in January for multiple financial violations related to the club’s transfer-related accounting practices.
The Committee determined an appeals court should hear the case before any final punishment is handed down to the Bianconeri.
As a result, Max Allegri’s men are now third in the table with 59 points, dropping Roma to fourth. Juve’s appeal is expected to be heard sometime over the next month.
