ALL-TIME BAD BOYS

Love 'em or hate 'em, these guys make the soccer world go round.

Fiorentina midfielder Ruben Olivera was banned for four games on Tuesday following a stamp on Roma's Miralem Pjanic in Saturday's 4-2 loss.

Olivera was shown only a yellow card at the time but has been punished further on video evidence.

He was handed a one-match ban for having collected four yellow cards, and an extra three-match suspension for violent conduct.

Fiorentina has a week to decide whether to appeal.
