Juve got into a scandal again
Juventus once again got into a big scandal, it’s good that it didn’t lead to expulsion from Serie A, like in 2006. But we must forget about Juve’s European competitions. The Court of Appeal of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) granted the prosecutor’s request and decided to deduct 15 points from the Turin club for financial fraud. Until Friday night, Juventus was in third place and was in the Champions League zone, and now they will drop to the tenth line. Lazio, Roma and Atalanta will be 12 points away.

NAPOLI WINS WITHOUT HWICI
Napoli, after losing the Coppa Italia to outsiders Cremonese, went to Salerno to visit another team struggling to survive. I went without Kvaratskhelia – Khvicha got sick.
But today Napoli is such a well-oiled team that without one of the leading players they can easily defeat teams of the level of Salernitana.
Especially when Victor Osimhen is on the squad, for whom the club rightly put 100 million euros. If we have Mudrik worth one hundred lyams… Well, I won’t.

Osimhen scored in the first half in his own style: he pushed past the defender and fired hard into the near box. The side referee identified a microscopic offside.
In minute 3 added to the first half, Di Lorenzo spiked the ball just below the crossbar after a great challenge from the visitors.
Early in the second half, Osimhen spiked the ball after a long-range shot from Elmas.
Although the entire half was still ahead, there was no doubt about Napoli’s victory.
Spalletti’s team continues to lead confidently with 50 points. Milan has 38 points and tomorrow the Milanese play away from home with Lazio. Inter is 37, black and blue take Empoli. Juventus plays today at home against Atalanta. I wonder how the team will look after deducting 15 points.

And so Alexey Miranchuk wrote his name in the history of Torino. The Russian scored a very nice goal in the 33rd minute. Alexei received the ball in the corner of the penalty area, and from the spot, almost without swinging, he turned the ball into the far corner. Without a single chance for the goalkeeper. This goal was the only one of the match.
