Genoa hit hard by suspensions

Antonio Floro Flores and Gelson Fernandes picked up two-match bans, as Genoa are decimated for their Inter match after insulting officials.

The tempestuous 2-1 defeat at Catania cost Genoa dearly, as it saw Coach Davide Ballardini, player Domenico Criscito and Floro Flores sent off.

Floro Flores had just been substituted when he hurled abuse at the fourth official and was sent off from the bench, earning a two-game ban.

Criscito saw red for the foul that gave away a contentious penalty, then Ballardini followed for dissent.

Miguel Veloso was also found to have insulted the officials, so he too is suspended for Genoa's next Serie A game against Inter.

Chievo midfielder Fernandes has been handed a two-match ban, while among the others suspended this weekend are Roma captain Francesco Totti.

Two-match ban: Floro Flores (Genoa), Fernandes (Chievo)

One-match ban: Augustyn (Catania), Bacinovic, Darmian (Palermo), Criscito, Veloso (Genoa), Paci (Parma), Bogdani, Ceccarelli (Cesena), Canini (Cagliari), Pepe (Juventus), Totti (Roma)
