An Italian Appeal Court has temporarily restored the 15-point reduction imposed by Serie A’s regulatory body FIGC on Juventus for alleged capital gains in their financial activities.

The verdict was issued on Wednesday after a three-hour hearing at the Collegio di Garanzia, the country’s top sporting court. The result propelled Juventus from seventh to third place in the league rankings, increasing their chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

According to Football Italia, the FIGC did not offer any evidence at the appeal, and their position was taken by Ugo Taucer, the CONI prosecutor in the case, who stated that he “has a lack of clarity in the motivation that must be appreciated and evaluated by a new judgment.”

Following the verdict in favor of the Old Lady, the FIGC Federal Court of Appeal must re-evaluate for a new trial, which might take place within a month or after the end of the current season – any fresh sentence would be postponed until the 2023/24 season.

The ban imposed by FIGC on former Juventus vice president Pavel Nedved and several low-ranking members of the club’s old board of directors was lifted. However, Juve president Andrea Agnelli and Director of Football Fabio Paratici’s appeal was denied.
