Zarate banned for three games

Lazio's Mauro Zarate has been suspended for three matches after being involved in a post-match altercation at Bologna yesterday.

The Argentine was at the centre of a scuffle which saw numerous players, playing staff and even match officials involved.

The incident has been looked at closely by the disciplinary panel on Monday and the Argentine has been slapped with a three-game stop.

Bologna haven't escaped punishment though after Henry Gimenez was dismissed for his actions while sitting on the Bologna bench.

The substitute took offence to an Andres Dias challenge which saw the Lazio defender dismissed in the 83rd minute.

Gimenez's reaction to that foul has seen him banned for Bologna's next two League games.

It's unclear whether Lazio or Bologna will appeal against today's decisions.
