Juventus being hit with a sizeable 15-point deduction in the current Serie A season will make a significant difference to the Serie A table. Although a points deduction was always a possibility in the capital gains case, it was not certain if one would be forthcoming, and even less certain if any deduction would apply to the 2022/23 season or be applied from the beginning of 2023/24.
Juventus will fall into the bottom half of the table with their 15-point deduction, below city rivals Torino and level onto 22 points with Bologna and Empoli. Massimiliano Allegri will now have to work on getting the Bianconeri up from 11th in a desperate attempt to push for the European places, having been in a title race until their recent 5-1 hammering at Napoli.
Juventus points deduction
Juventus have been hit with a deduction of 15 points by the Federal Court of Appeal, going beyond the requests made by the FIGC Prosecutor’s Office following the controversial capital gains case. Eleven individuals have also been hit with bans.
Although the Prosecutor’s Office had only requested a nine-point deduction for Juventus, the club will have 15 points taken from their current tally in Serie A, as the penalty will be applied immediately. That will see them drop from third to 11th in the Serie A table, even below city rivals Torino, and they will be level on 22 points with Bologna and Empoli.
Juventus capital gains case: Bans handed down
As many as 11 executives who have had links to Juventus have been slapped with bans as well. Fabio Paratici – currently working at Premier League side Tottenham – has been hit with a 30-month ban, which is the longest of the lot. Maurizio Arrivabene and Andrea Agnelli are each banned for 24 months, Federico Cherubini is banned for 16 months.
Pavel Nedved, Paolo Garimberti, Enrico Vellano, Assia Grazioli Venier, Caitlin Mary Hughes, Daniela Marilungo and Francesco Roncaglio will all serve eight-month bans.
“The Federal Court of Appeal chaired by Mario Luigi Torsello has partially accepted the appeal of the FIGC Prosecutor’s Office… sanctioning Juventus with a 15-point penalty to be served in the current season and with a number of bans for 11 Bianconeri executives,” read an FIGC statement on Friday, January 20.
