Three-match bans for Lavezzi and Rosi

As expected Napoli striker Ezequiel Lavezzi and Roma full-back Aleandro Rosi have received three-match bans for spitting at each other.

Both players were tried by television after the referee missed the incident during Saturday evening's clash at the Stadio Olimpico.

A yellow card had been given to Lavezzi and Rosi for the melee that followed.

It's a big blow for Napoli who aren't exactly flush with options up front.

Lavezzi will miss the club's upcoming matches against Catania, Milan and Brescia.
