Juventus handed 10 point deduction by Federal Court

Their chances of qualifying for the Champions League are all but over

Juventus have been handed a 10-point deduction that almost certainly brings their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League to an end.

The Serie A side, who have been sat in second place, were given the punishment at a court hearing on Monday afternoon in the latest twist on their current false accounting case.

An 11-point deduction had initially been discussed, but the court decided to settle for 10.

As a result, Juventus will now drop to seventh in the table and leave them outside of the European places with just three games of the league campaign remaining.

Juve were given a 15-point deduction earlier in the season which were linked to the club’s alleged financial irregularities and transfer dealings that saw the prices of players inflated only for it to be reversed after an appeal.

A number of top executives that have worked for the club have been handed suspended sentences including Fabio Paratici, who was forced to leave his role as director of football at Tottenham Hotspur after being handed a 30-month ban.

There is a chance that the latest decision could be overturned once more with Juventus allowed to appeal the 10-point deduction, which could take the case to a sixth trial.
