Olivera given three-match ban

Fiorentina will be without January signing Ruben Olivera for their next three games after his dismissal against Bologna.

The Uruguayan international was shown red for elbowing Alessandro Diamanti in last night’s 2-0 loss at the Stadio Dall’Ara.

The 28-year-old joined the Viola from Lecce last month and Tuesday’s appearance was only his second for the club.

The Tuscan outfit will face Lazio at the weekend where they will also be without banned defenders Mattia Cassani and Alessandro Gamberini.

Meanwhile, Bologna’s Diamanti will be out of their home game against Udinese because of a yellow card he received yesterday.
