Napoli and Roma appeal verdicts postponed

The appeal verdicts concerning Juventus-Napoli and Verona-Roma have been postponed, reports in Italy claim.

Both the Giallorossi and the Azzurri had lodged appeal against their 3-0 defeat by default against Verona and Juventus respectively.

Roma had been penalised for irregularly fielding Amadou Diawara in the 0-0 draw with Verona, so Hellas received a 3-0 victory.

Napoli had been handed a 3-0 by defeat by default against Juventus and docked one point as they didn’t show up to face the Old Lady after two Covid cases emerged in their team in October. The Disciplinary Commission ruled the Partenopei didn’t follow the COVID-19 protocol.

“The proceedings of the appeals submitted to the National Sports Court of Appeal by Napoli and Roma are concluded,” FIGC explained in an official statement.

“The appeal of Napoli concerns a 0-3 defeat by default and the penalty of a point in the standings for the lack of dispute of the game against Juventus on October 4.

“The Giallorossi’s appeal concerns the 0-3 loss decided by the Sporting Judge for the game against Hellas Verona on September 19.

“The two judges, Piero Sandulli and Lorenzo Attolico, are gathered in the Chamber of Council and the results will be announced at the end of the works.”

According to Sky Sport, the verdicts could arrive tomorrow or in the following days.

Napoli’s lawyer Mattia Grassani said the Azzurri ‘are the victims’ and believes the appeal could end in a positive way for the club.
