There has been a major update in Italian football late on Friday following the latest ruling from the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio.
The Italian Football Federation has confirmed Juventus will be hit with a significant point deduction this season due to the club’s capital gains violations regarding about 62 player transfers.
According to a report from The Athletic, a federal prosecutor initially called for a nine-point penalty, but that has officially been increased to 15.

The club currently sits third in the Serie A table level with Inter on 37 points, one behind Milan and 10 off leaders Napoli.
The point deduction would therefore place Juventus at 22 points, dropping to 11th in the table level with Bologna and Empoli.
Additionally, the organization confirmed inhibitions for eleven Juventus managers, while acquittals were confirmed for eight other clubs involved.

These include Sampdoria, Pro Vercelli, Genoa, Parma, Pisa, Empoli, Novara and Pescara.
Juventus now have the ability to appeal the ruling within 30 days.
