Osvaldo given two-game ban

Roma striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has been banned for two games after his dismissal on Wednesday. Another 16 players have been given one-match suspensions.

Osvaldo was shown the red card late in the 2-1 defeat to Fiorentina for verbally abusing the referee and then ironically applauding the fourth official.

The 26-year-old, 11 goals in 25 League games this term, will now miss the matches against Napoli and Chievo.

Roma will still be without Erik Lamela for those two ties after he served the first of his three-match stop yesterday.

Daniele De Rossi will also be banned after he was one of 16 men to be handed a one-game stop after the midweek round.

The other 15 are: Colucci (Cesena), Boruc (Fiorentina), Cesar (Chievo), Candreva (Lazio), Cigarini (Atalanta), Cuadrado (Lecce), Floro Flores (Udinese), Matri (Juventus), Moras (Cesena), Morganella (Novara), Rennella (Cesena), Rossi (Siena), Stankovic (Inter), Stendardo (Lecce) and Jankovic (Genoa).
