Juventus: Two-match ban for Morata

Juventus striker Alvaro Morata has reportedly been handed a two-match ban for the sending off against Benevento.

Multiple reports in Italy reveals the Spanish striker, who scored the opener in the 1-1 draw against the Streghe, was shown the red card after 97 minutes and therefore misses out on the Derby della Mole against Torino this weekend and the next match against Genoa.

Calciomercato.com reports the Disciplinary Commission has suspended the Bianconeri forward for two games due to ‘a disrespectful expression addressed to the referee on the pitch at the end of the match.”

Pirlo has already confirmed Paulo Dybala will be on the bench against Dynamo Kiev tomorrow, as he will play in the Derby against Torino on Saturday.

In addition to Morata’s two games out, two other players have been suspended for one game after Serie A Week 9.

Tolgay Arslan from Udinese will miss the match against Atalanta and Benevento midfielder Pasquale Schiattarella must sit out against Parma.
