Napoli's appeal was announced

Napoli's appeal against Juventus has been rejected

Juventus

and

Napoli

were due to face each other in the

Serie A

in Turin but the

local health authority (ASL)

did not issue a permit for them to leave the city and therefore the

Italian Football Federation

declared the result

3-0

in favor of Juventus. In addition, a point was deducted from

Napoli

.

Napoli, however, did not accept the decision and immediately appealed. In fact,

Napoli

believed what happened was not their fault and that the match against

Juventus

should be repeated.

In this regard, moments ago, Napoli received the answer to their appeal;

"Napoli's behaviour was effectively creating an alibi for themselves not to play.

“Their conduct in the days leading up to the match were already aimed towards not playing, with clear violation of the fundamental principles that sporting justice is based on, namely fairness, decency and probity.”
