Juventus were deducted 15 points in January but have now moved up to third in the Serie A table after the decision was reversed.
Juventus have had their 15-point deduction reversed by Italian football chiefs, it has been confirmed.
The Italian giants now sit third in the Serie A table, dumping Milan giants Inter and AC out of the Champions League places. Three hours before their crucial Europa League quarter-final second leg away to Sporting Lisbon, Juventus saw their Serie A penalty revoked pending a new trial to further clarify their capital gains controversy, meaning the FIGC Federal Court of Appeal must re-evaluate following its original decision in January.
The court's investment is likely to drag on until after the end of this season, so Juve's ultimate punishment could be for the 2023-24 season. Thursday's news immediately pushes Massimiliano Allegri's side up to third place on 59 points, bumping Jose Mourinho's Roma down to fourth.
Milan and Inter, who're set to meet in the Champions League semi-finals next month, are now fifth and sixth respectively. While Napoli are almost out of sight at the top of Serie A, there is a chance that Juventus can nab second spot, as they now sit just two points adrift of Lazio with eight games remaining.
Also coming out of Italy, it's emerged that Fabio Paratici, the current Tottenham managing director formerly of Juve, has also seen appeal against his two-and-a-half year ban from football, extended globally by FIFA, rejected. The same applies for appeals for bans against former colleagues Andrea Agnelli and Federico Cherubini, although an appeal against Pavel Nedved's ban has been accepted.
Juventus' verdict had been increasingly likely since the three-hour hearing which took place at the Italian Council of Sports Guarantee on Wednesday afternoon. The FIGC didn't present any evidence at the appeal, leading to their place being taken by Italian National Olympic Committee prosecutor Ugo Taucer.
As as quoted by Football Italia, he confessed that the ruling "has a lack of clarity in the motivation that must be appreciated and evaluated by a new judgment."
