Zarate ban reduced

Lazio striker Mauro Zarate has seen his ban for violent misconduct reduced by the FIGC.

The Argentine lost his head and sparked a huge brawl at the end of last week's game against Bologna at the Renato Dall'Ara.

He tried to punch one of Bologna's players and ended up clipping the linesman instead.

Zarate initially received a three-match suspension.

However, a review of the incident means Lazio will now be without him for two games only.
