Juventus’ hopes of finishing in the Champions League were given a major boost last night as their 15-point deduction in Serie A has been revoked for now on appeal.
The Italian Giants have now moved from seventh to third in place in the league with 59 points after Italy’s highest sporting court ordered for the case to be re-examined.
In January Juventus, who are nicknamed the Old Lady, were deducted 15 points after they were found guilty of false accounting by Italian football’s governing body (FIGC).

An investigation was carried out last year into transfer dealings made by the club between 2019 and 2021 which showed officials had fixed their balance sheets by approximately $65m. This led to former Sporting Director Fabio Paratici being banned from football worldwide for 30 months and today he confirmed his resignation from Tottenham Hotspur, who he had joined in 2021.
The news came just hours before their 1-1 draw against Sporting Lisbon which saw the club progress to the Semi-Finals of the Europa League, going through 2-1 on aggregate.
