Serie A: One game for Pellegrini

Serie A announced that ten players are suspended for the upcoming fixtures this weekend, including Napoli’s Eljif Elmas and Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Eljif Elmas will miss the next match at the San Paolo against Lecce after picking up a yellow against Sampdoria on Monday night.

Lorenzo Pellegrini was sent off for two bookable offences in Giallorossi’s 4-2 defeat to Sassuolo last weekend and will miss the next game against Bologna.

The Disciplinary commission have also handed a one-match ban after yellow cards to Alessandro Bastoni from Inter, Luca Cigarini from Cagliari, Marten de Roon of Atalanta, Andrea Poli from Bologna, Ernesto Torregross from Brescia and Cristian Romero from Genoa.

Roma star Lorenzo Pellegrini, Valon Behrami from Genoa and Sofyan Amrabat from Hellas Verona are also suspended after receiving red cards during their respective matches last weekend.

The commission also gave out a double sanction to Sampdoria after their fans directed insults towards their Neapolitan opposition.

Fiorentina were also handed heavy fines for their conduct after the match against Juventus.

The Viola’s Giancarlo Antognoni has been handed a €25,000 fine for his behaviour in the dressing room after the match, as Daniele Prade received a €20,000 penalty and Giuseppe Barone was charged €10,000.
