Severe Consequences Following Altercation in Italian Derby

    The Italian Football Association has announced a sanction in connection with the events of the match between Inter and Juventus in the semi-final first leg of the Coppa Italia, which ended in a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Stadium.

    The match saw heavy clashes in the final minutes after Romelu Lukaku scored the fatal goal for Inter.

    And the Italian federation decided to suspend Belgian player Romelu Lukaku for one match, without penalizing him for misbehavior despite being subjected to racist chants by fans after two consecutive warnings and a suspension.

    Juventus star player Joan Cuadrado was given a 3-match ban for inappropriate behavior and punching Inter players with a €10,000 fine, causing Juventus to miss matches against Lazio, Sassuolo and Napoli in the Italian league.

    Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanović was also suspended for three matches for also colliding and putting his hands on the neck of a Juventus player and fined him €10,000.

    And the Italian federation, in punishment, closed one of the stands of Juventus fans after racist chants that they let out at Lukaku.
