Garcia and Holebas win appeals

Rudi Garcia will be on the bench for Roma-Milan after his ban was suspended, while Jose Holebas saw his ban revoked.

The pair had been involved in an altercation in the tunnel after a fiery end to their 1-0 victory over Genoa last week.

A steward at Marassi had accused Garcia of attempting to physically attack him, but today partially retracted his statement via a letter sent by Genoa.

The Disciplinary Committee therefore accepted the incident needs to be examined in more detail and suspended the two-game touchline ban.

Meanwhile, Holebas saw his one-match ban revoked entirely on appeal.

That means he will be able to play tomorrow night against Milan.

Genoa's appeal against a three-round ban for striker Diego Perotti has been rejected.
