Mattia Destro given four-game ban

FC's Gab Marcotti explains how Roma can make a run at Juventus for the Serie A title.

Roma forward Mattia Destro has been given a four-game ban after television evidence was used to view an incident in the Giallorossi's 3-1 win over Cagliari on Sunday.

• De Martinis: Destro carries Roma

Destro, who already faced a one-game suspension after picking up a yellow card in a separate incident in the game, was seen lashing out at Cagliari defender Davide Astori.

Since none of the officials saw the incident, television evidence could be used, and a further three-game ban for violent conduct was sanctioned by the Lega Serie A on Tuesday.

Destro will not now be available until Roma face Juventus on the penultimate weekend of the season.

"The two opponents were chasing the ball towards the penalty area and, with the Rossoblu player leading, the Giallorosso player placed his right hand on the left shoulder of his rival and, in rapid succession, with a substantial and energetic movement of his left arm at shoulder level, he struck [his opponent] with a blow to the head using his hand.

"Immediately afterwards, Destro fell to the ground as if he was suffering. The Rossoblu player took him by his shirt and reprimanded him; seeing this, the referee booked Astori, without taking any action against Destro.

"When asked by the judge, the referee stated that neither he nor his assistants saw the incident of Destro hitting his opponent. The judge deems the Roma player's act was unequivocally an act of 'violent conduct'."

As a result, Destro, 23, will miss Roma's games against Atalanta, Fiorentina, Milan and Catania before returning to face Juve and for the final game of the season at Genoa.
