Juventus handed 15-points deduction following an investigation into the club’s transfer dealings

Federal Court of Appeals has handed down a 15-point penalty to Juventus as a result of the accepting the FIGC Prosecutor’s Office appeal to the original verdict regarding last spring’s plusvalenza investigation.

Juventus will appeal the decision to CONI’s Collegio di Garanzia, according to multiple reports in the Italian media.

Based on the 15-point penalty that Juventus have been given, this is how the Serie A table would suddenly look like as Juve tumbles from third to 11th alongside Serie A heavy hitters Bologna and Empoli:

The Federal Court of Appeals is also seeking longer bans for the likes of Andrea Agnelli, Fabio Paratici, Federico Cherubini and Pavel Nedved than originally thought, adding another layer into what has suddenly become a disaster of a Friday night for the Old Lady even though three of those four men are no longer at the club following their respective departures.

The FIGC Prosecutor’s Office announced late Friday night that they are reopening the capital gains case against Juventus, with the Federal Court accepting the request to appeal the initial verdict that was handed down last spring.

The latest step in the ongoing legal mess that has involved Juventus’ capital gains activity came down Friday, as the prosecutor for the Italian Football Federation requested that the Bianconeri be handed a nine-point penalty as punishment for the club’s actions.

On top of FIGC Prosecutor Giuseppe Chiné requesting a nine-point penalty for Juventus that would potentially go into effect this season, he has requested the following penalties for some of the members involved in the investigation:

A 16-month suspension for former Juventus President Andrea Agnelli.
A suspension of 20 months and 10 days for former Juventus Chief Football Officer Fabio Paratici.
A 10-month suspension for current Juventus sporting director Federico Cherubini.
A 12-month suspension for all other the former board members who recently stepped down, a group that includes ex-VP Pavel Nedved and ex-CEO Maurizio Arrivabene.
For the other clubs involved in the case — Empoli, Genoa, Sampdoria, Parma, Pisa, Pescara, Novara and Pro Vercelli — fines have been recommended.

Juventus will be able to appeal any points penalty to CONI’s Collegio di Garanzia, according to a report from La Repubblica.
