Pescara and Atalanta docked points

Atalanta and newly promoted Pescara have both been docked two points for the 2012-13 Serie A season by the Disciplinary Committee of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) following the "Last Bet" investigation into match-fixing.

Relegated Novara will start their first season back in Serie B with a four-point penalty, with Reggina also beginning the season on the same deduction.

In total, 72 rulings were made relating to the investigation, which focused on 33 Serie B and Coppa Italia games over the past two seasons, with many clubs fined and some people banned from football activities.

Atalanta, who finished 12th last season, have also been fined €25,000. Novara will also have to pay out €35,000 while Serie A clubs Siena and Sampdoria have both been fined €50,000.

Other penalties include:

Banned for five years: Former Inter Milan, Parma, Roma and Ternana defender Luigi Sartor; Piacenza's Mario Cassano; Ravenna's Alessandro Zamperini and Nicola Santoni

Banned for two years: Ex-AC Milan midfielder Tomas Locatelli; former Atalanta captain Cristiano Doni

Suspended ban for three years: Former Fiorentina midfielder Alberto Santana

Suspended ban for six months: Ex-Inter Milan and Torino striker Nicola Ventola

The investigation is ongoing and more punishments are expected in the coming months.
