Conte set for ban reduction

Reports suggest that Juventus boss Antonio Conte should have his suspension reduced by the TNAS appeal court.

The tribunal in Rome will reconvene on Tuesday to examine further evidence provided by the tactician’s lawyers.

Although a verdict may not be given today, Conte looks set to have his 10-month touchline ban downgraded.

The Gazzetta dello Sport is suggesting that the punishment will be slashed to a six-month stop, while the Corriere dello Sport is claiming that his suspension could be cut to just four months.

The Coach is currently banned from match-day duties after he was found guilty of failing to report an alleged attempt to fix a game which he was in charge at Siena.

Conte, whose Juventus side will face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League tonight, has always insisted that he is innocent.
