Juventus’ 15-point deduction suspended as Bianconeri soar in Serie A table

A potentially season-defining development in the top-flight of Italian football has been announced late on Thursday evening.

This comes in the form of confirmation that the points penalty handed down to Juventus earlier in the season has, for the time being, been overturned.

Juve, seemingly forever at the forefront of the headlines, were of course rocked once more earlier this year, upon word coming to the fore that the Bianconeri had been deducted a full 15 points in the Serie A table.

The sanction in question came on the back of an investigation into transfer dealings at the Allianz Stadium, with a specific emphasis on inflated fees.

Juventus, for their part, maintained their innocence throughout, quickly confirming the club’s intention to appeal the decision, amid widespread claims that none of the game’s laws had actually been infringed.

A lengthy court case, in turn, played out on Wednesday, the verdict of which was pencilled in for today.

As confirmed by reliable Juventus reporter Romeo Agresti:

‘The Collegio di Garanzia refers the sentence on the -15 inflicted on Juventus to the Court of Appeal. Thus, the Bianconeri regain their 15 points while waiting for the Federal Court to reformulate the sentence.’

Significantly, the understanding is that, even in the case that Juve are re-sanctioned by the Federal Court, any ensuing punishment would apply to the 2023/24 campaign.
