Mexes picks up two-match ban

Roma have been dealt a blow as Philippe Mexes has been banned for two matches meaning he'll miss two crucial fixtures in Serie A.

The France international is alleged to have insulted the fourth official at the end of last night's match against Brescia at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma will now be without Mexes for the upcoming matches against Inter and Napoli, which could prove decisive in the title race.

The 28-year-old seems to have a habit of getting into trouble when Roma face Brescia.

He was sent off in the corresponding fixture at the Rigamonti earlier in the season.
