Gargano misses Coppa Italia final

Walter Gargano is out of the Coppa Italia final against Juventus through suspension, whilst the Turin outfit pick up a hefty €20,000 fine.

From the midweek action, that saw Juve overcome Milan on Tuesday and Napoli beat Siena on Wednesday to set up a late May final Gargano, Philippe Mexes and Daniele Mannini have all been handed one-game bans for accumulating yellow cards. 

As bans are competition-specific in Italy, Uruguayan midfielder Gargano’s suspension means that he will miss the Coppa Italia final against Juventus.

Meanwhile, the Bianconeri have been fined €20,000 for insulting and racist chants aimed at more than one of the Rossoneri’s players at the Juventus Stadium.

Diavolo Coach Massimiliano Allegri has also been warned of future conduct and fined €5,000 for his insults fired off during the game that finished 2-2 after extra time.
