Juventus' 15-point deduction has been temporarily suspended today, seeing the Bianconeri move back into third place in Serie A behind Napoli and Lazio. This is not the end of the capital gains case though, as a new trial and restructured punishment are to come.

The Collegio di Garanza of the Italian National Olympic CommitteeCONI – has accepted Juventus‘ appeal against their punishment for the ongoing capital gains case, which now involves other Serie A clubs as well. This sees the temporary suspension of the 15-point deduction while pending a new trial and awaiting a reformulated punishment from the Federal Court.

This takes Juventus to third in the Serie A table behind Lazio and above AS Roma, AC Milan, Inter and Atalanta.

The appeals made by Pavel Nedved , Paolo Garimberti and Enrico Vellano were also accepted by CONI. Those of Andrea Agnelli , Fabio Paratici and Federico Cherubini were rejected.

In on-field matters, Juventus face champions-elect Napoli at the Allianz Stadium on Matchday 31 of Serie A on Sunday evening.

What is happening at Juventus?

The news that originally broke on November 28, 2022, when the entire Juventus board resigned came as the club were being investigated for suspicious transfer activity whereby they allegedly inflated values of players for reasons of capital gains. The financial statements from 2018, 2019 and 2020 are being looked into by investigators. There may also be questions regarding allegedly deferred payments during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the spring and summer of 2020, as many as 23 Juventus players agreed to reduce their salaries over a four-month period at the club. This was thought to be to help the club navigate its way through a trying financial period. But, it has since been alleged that the players’ salaries were paid, but in a way that would have permitted for tax payments to be avoided by both club and player and for it to seem as though Juventus’ books balanced. Should these accusations be proven, the club would face charges of financial fraud.

Who resigned from Juventus?
