Bonucci and D’Aversa among bans

Leonardo Bonucci, Luiz Felipe, Milan Badelj and Stefano Sturaro are among the players suspended for the Serie A Week 25 fixtures, along with Parma coach Roberto D’Aversa.

The Disciplinary Commission has given its verdicts ahead of this weekend’s games.

Florian Aye (Brescia), Milan Badelj (Fiorentina), Stefano Denswil (Bologna), Nicola Murru (Sampdoria) and Jerdy Schouten (Bologna) were all sent off last week and are given one-match bans.

The following players are suspended for one game after an accumulation of yellow cards: Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus), Nahitan Nandez (Cagliari), Miguel Veloso (Verona), Gaston Ramirez (Sampdoria), Luiz Felipe (Lazio), Stefano Sturaro (Genoa).

Parma coach D’Aversa has been booked five times for dissent and is therefore handed a touchline ban.

Roma were fined €13,000, Atalanta €8,000 and Sampdoria €6,000 after their fans threw objects including fireworks on to the pitch.

Fuzato replace Mirante in EL squad

Roma have made changes to the squad for the Europa League ahead of their match against KAA Gent, with Daniel Fuzato replacing Antonio Mirante.

Two days ahead of their first leg in the last 32 of the Europa League, the Giallorossi have decided to exclude Mirante from their registered list of players available to play in the competition.

Goal Italia has reported that Mirante is struggling with a meniscus injury and Roma have officially announced that he has been replaced in the squad ahead of the visit from Belgium.

They have handed the back-up role to the Brazilian 22-year-old Fuzato, who might get his first chance to play if current No1 Pau Lopez will need to be replaced at some point.

Fuzato arrived at the Olimpico in the summer of 2018 but has yet to play for the club and has figured as a third choice in Serie A this term.

Europa League last 32 referees

UEFA have announced the referees for this week’s Europa League fixtures, where Georgi Kabakov will oversee Roma-Gent and Carlos del Cerro Grande will officiate Ludogorets-Inter.

The Giallorossi and the Nerazzurri prepare for their first legs in the last 32 of the Europa League this Thursday, when Inter travel to Bulgaria and Roma will host Belgian KAA Gent.

The Bulgarian match official Kabakov prepares to lead the teams out of the tunnel at the Olimpico this Thursday and will bring experience from the Champions League earlier this term.

He was in charge when Real Madrid drew 2-2 against Club Brugge at the Santiago Bernabeu and when Tottenham beat Olympiakos 4-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November.

Del Cerro Grande is another official who will take a step down from the Champions League this campaign, as he oversaw four games in the group stage of the elite tournament this term – including Napoli’s 1-1 draw at Anfield on November 27.

Europa League last 32 referees

Roma-Gent: Kabakov (Bulgaria) – VAR: Kamphuis (Holland)

Ludogorets-Inter: Del Cerro Grande (Spain) – VAR: Martinez Munuera (Spain)

Roma look to Klostermann

Roma are being linked with a summer move for RB Leipzig right-back Lukas Klostermann.

The Giallorossi have struggled in the right-back position this season, with Davide Santon not convincing, Leonardo Spinazzola consistently injured and Bruno Peres struggling for form.

Alessandro Florenzi was also sent on loan to Valencia after falling down the pecking order.

Calciomercato.com states that the club from the capital have been offered Leipzig’s Klostermann by a broker.

The website reports that it is the same broker who helped Patrick Schick’s deal to Leipzig last summer come to fruition.

Klostermann, 23, has been with the German outfit since 2014 and is viewed as one of their key figures in the battle for the Bundesliga title this season.

The right-back is thought to be valued between €30-€35m, but could be inserted into any permanent deal for Schick.
