Cagliari-Roma appeal due soon

Cagliari’s appeal against the 3-0 result awarded to Roma could result in the game being replayed or the Sardinians docked points.

The Serie A fixture was called off when the local council ordered it be played behind closed doors due to the Is Arenas failing security checks.

Cagliari President Massimo Cellino publicly urged fans to attend anyway, so the game was abandoned amid fears for public safety and Roma handed the 3-0 win.

The Sardinians have appealed and the verdict is expected some time next week.

Options include replaying the match or docking Cagliari points for causing the postponement, although it is possible the verdict will include both those moves.
