Osvaldo given Coppa ban

Roma’s Pablo Daniel Osvaldo has been banned for three Italian Cup games following his dismissal last week.

The Argentine-born Italian international was shown a red card for an off-the-ball elbow on Carlos Metheu in his club’s 3-0 win over Atalanta.

Osvaldo can thus only return to the competition this season should the Giallorossi make it through to the Final.

Roma will play Osvaldo’s former club Fiorentina in the quarter-finals.
