After they were found guilty of dishonest accounting, they received punishment in January. Juventus were imposed with a 15-point deduction earlier in the month.
However, yesterday,Italy’s top sporting court ordered that the issue be re-examined. Although the team has jumped from seventh to third in Serie A, they could still face punishment when a subsequent hearing is convened. The Italian Football Federation appeals court, which rendered the original sanction, will now hear Juve’s case once more.
Juventus chief football officer Francesco Calvo welcomed the decision to revisit the case. “As of today, we finally have certainty, and we expect that the points that have been given back to us will remain with us forever,” he added.
Juventus eliminated AC Milan from the Champions League spot with eight games remaining in the season, and Roma dropped to fourth.
