FIGC 'could face action' over Muntari

The FIGC could face retrospective action for its handling of racist insults directed at Sulley Muntari, reports the BBC.

The Pescara midfielder was shown a second yellow card for leaving the field in protest after suffering racial abuse during the latter stages of his side's Serie A defeat to Cagliari nine days ago.

Although the subsequent one-match ban handed to the 32-year-old has since been overturned, the British media outlet claims that Italian football's governing body may face action from FIFA over the way it managed the fall-out of the incident.

"I would like to, I can definitely see it," Verratti commented. "But it has to be a top team, whether that be in our country or in Spain.

Serie A Week 35: Did You Know?

Torino terminate Juventus record, Roma's most prolific San Siro trip since 1935, Dries Mertens repeat gift and Lazio goals match Milan in 1949-50 as Susy Campanale rounds up the stats.

Juventus saw their all-time Serie A record of 33 consecutive home victories come to an end. The last opponent they failed to beat at the Stadium was Frosinone, a 1-1 draw on September 23, 2015. This was only the second time this season that the Bianconeri had gone behind on their own turf, fighting back to beat Udinese in October 2016.

Torino had also ended another record in March 2016, namely Gigi Buffon’s 974 minutes of Serie A football without conceding.

Zeman: 'Pescara don't score'

Zdenek Zeman laments Pescara's inability to score goals after their 1-0 defeat to Crotone.

The Delfini tactician feels his already-relegated team were the better side in this afternoon's contest at the Stadio Adriatico, but were undone by their lack of killer instinct.

"We played better than Crotone but we didn't manage to score. The problem is goals," Zeman explained.

The Coach admitted that Ahmad Benali had 'lost his head' after the forward was sent off for dissent in the latter stages of the match.

Nicola: 'We won't give up'

Davide Nicola says Crotone will not give up until the end after their 1-0 win over Pescara.

The Pitagorici picked up their fourth win in six Serie A matches with victory at the home of the already-relegated Delfini, increasing their chances of survival.

However, wins for both Empoli and Genoa mean Crotone failed to make up ground on the teams above them as the matches continue to run out.

"We need to look at ourselves like always," Nicola said at his post-match Press conference

Tonev keeps Crotone alive

Aleksandar Tonev’s stunning long-range strike gave Crotone the victory away to Pescara and still some hope of Serie A safety.

The Delfini were already doomed to the drop and Palermo went down this weekend, but there is one more spot still to be avoided.

The Calabrians gave themselves hope of staying up in their debut top flight campaign thanks to a 1-0 win, sealed by Tonev’s fantastic scorcher from distance into the top corner.

Ahmad Benali lost his cool and was sent off for repeatedly insulting the referee.
