Mazzarri ban overturned for Chelsea

Walter Mazzarri will be on the bench for Napoli’s crucial Champions League clash with Chelsea after an appeal on his original suspension was upheld.

The Coach was handed a two-game ban in the competition for his dismissal in the final match of the group stages, when he entered the field of play to push an opposition player - Villarreal’s Nilmar - away from the ball as it went out of play.

Mazzarri served the first game of that suspension in the first leg Last 16 clash against Chelsea at San Paolo, but is back for the second leg this Wednesday after the club confirmed that their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport has been successful.
