Appropriate discipline handed down after fight between Genoa and Torino

The aftermath of the raucous fight in Genoa's recent match against Torino has been swift and to the point. Sporting Judge Gianpaolo Tosel has acted accordingly and made it known that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.

Torino was particularly hard hit with Marco Pisano and Angelo Ogbonna off for four matches with Aimo Diana, and Francesco Pratali and their brilliant striker Rolando Bianchi receiving two-match bans. This will naturally have a massive impact upon their last gasp effort to avoid relegation. For Genoa Rubén Olivera will miss the next three match-day whilst Ivan Jurić is out for two.
