The Italian National Olympic Committee granted Napoli’s appeal against the Serie A Disciplinary Committee’s decision to award the club a technical defeat for the match against Juventus.
Recall that on October 4, the Juventus match against Napoli did not take place due to the fact that the chief doctor of Napoli did not release Napoli to Turin for the game due to two positive tests for coronavirus in the team.
As a result, Serie A did not consider the reason for Napoli’s absence to be valid, and awarded the club a technical defeat and an additional 1 point fine. Both of these disciplinary sanctions have now been lifted.
The teams will be forced to play the match. When exactly the fight will take place is not yet known.
