Juventus’ 15-point deduction penalty for illicit transfer activity for have been nullified after Italy’s highest sporting court ruled that the case should be re-examined.
The decision on Thursday, April 20, 2022, bumped the Turin giants up to third in Serie A, but they will have to wait for a new ruling from the Italian Football Federation’s appeals court, which inflicted the original punishment.
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 2023/2024 season.
The Old Lady are now up to third place on 59 points, bumping Jose Mourinho’s Roma down to fourth.
It also gives it the chance to be ahead of Inter Milan and AC Milan in the Champions League places.
With Napoli almost out of sight at the top of Serie A, Juventus can finish in the second spot, as they now sit just two points behind Lazio with eight games remaining.
