Serie A: Five players suspended

There are five Serie A players given a one-match ban for this weekend, while Sassuolo and Frosinone were fined.

Alfred Duncan was expected to receive a stronger punishment, as he was booked and then shown a straight red card for a reckless tackle.

However, he has been suspended for one round with a warning.

Also sitting out this weekend are Alessandro Deiola (Cagliari), Albin Ekdal (Sampdoria), Perparim Hetemaj (Chievo) and Erick Pulgar (Bologna).

Frosinone were fined €5,000 for their fans throwing objects during the defeat to Roma, while Sassuolo must pay €3,000 after an unauthorised person in the dressing room area shouted insults at the referee.
