Juventus win appeal against coach Allegri's one-match touchline ban

BY foxsports • December 18, 2014

Juventus have been successful in their appeal to have the one-match touchline ban for coach Massimiliano Allegri lifted.

Allegri was punished by the Lega Serie A after insulting officials during Juve's 1-1 draw against Sampdoria last weekend.

Juve's emergency appeal was partially accepted by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and Allegri will take his place on the bench at the Sant'Elia stadium in Thursday's league match at Cagliari.

A statement from the FIGC read: "The Sporting Court of Appeal has partially accepted the petition presented by Juventus, lifting the one-match touchline ban given to coach Massimiliano Allegri and instead handing the manager a 10,000 euros fine."

Juve have drawn their last two league games to see their lead at the top of Serie A cut to just one point heading into the 16th week of the season.

After Thursday night's game in Sardinia, Juve travel to Qatar for the last game of the year - the Italian Super Cup final against Napoli in Doha on Monday.
