Chiellini risks ban for Belotti hit

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini could face a ban using video evidence after he was caught on camera striking Torino forward Andrea Belotti.

The incident occurred during Sunday’s Derby della Mole, which ended 1-0 for the Bianconeri.

Chiellini caught Belotti in the face with a fist, but it remains to be seen if that will be considered an intentional act.

A great deal also depends on what the referee wrote in his report, as if he didn’t witness the incident at all, then it could be submitted as video evidence.

VAR was not used in this case, as it seems the connection was caught on a Sky Sport Italia exclusive pitch-side camera and not one used by the officials in the booth.
