Rabiot ban still stands?

There is some genuine confusion over whether Adrien Rabiot will be suspended against Udinese after Juventus left him out with Fiorentina.

The midfielder had originally been set to sit out a ban in Week 3’s fixture with Napoli on October 4.

That was awarded as a Juve 3-0 victory when Napoli failed to attend in Turin, but an appeal with the CONI overturned that decision yesterday.

The game must now be played and that means the Rabiot ban was never fulfilled.

Rabiot had been suspended for that Week 4 fixture that never took place, but because it was credited as a 3-0 Juve victory, his ban was considered spent.
