Natali banned for three games

Milan’s Mario Balotelli is not the only player to be handed a three-match ban today as Bologna’s Cesare Natali has been given an identical suspension.

While Balotelli was dismissed after the final whistle in the 2-1 loss to Napoli, the defender saw red at half-time in the 2-1 loss to Torino for verbally abusing match officials.

Meanwhile, three players have been handed one-match bans. They are: Andre Dias of Lazio, Parma’s Mattia Cassani and Panagiotis Kone of Bologna.
