Ilicic ban, three clubs fined

Atalanta’s Josip Ilicic has been given a two-match ban, while Juventus, Udinese and Roma were fined for anti-Neapolitan chants.

The Serie A disciplinary commission announced Ilicic will be suspended for two games after his red card for insulting the referee during a 3-2 defeat to Empoli.

It means the creative midfielder will miss out on games against Napoli and Udinese.

Meanwhile, Juventus were fined €15,000 for chants of ‘territorial discrimination’ against Neapolitans during their match against SPAL.

This is certainly not the first time these offensive chants have taken place in Turin, but this was unusual in that Napoli weren’t even playing.

Similarly, Roma and Udinese were both fined €10,000 for the same chants during their match.

Sampdoria were fined €5,000, Atalanta and Bologna €3,000 each for throwing flares and smoke bombs on to the pitch, with Parma fined €2,000 for chants from the crowd insulting the referee.

Genoa Coach Ivan Juric has been suspended for one match for insulting the referee.

Lazio Coach Simone Inzaghi was sent off from the touchline, but he only received a €5,000 fine and warning.
