Juventus to appeal its match-fixing sentence again

TURIN, Italy -- Juventus will appeal to an administrative court to get a lighter sentence in Italy's match-fixing scandal.

After a board meeting on Monday, Juventus said it was appealing to the court -- the Tar of Lazio -- because of "the unjustified gravity of the sanctions and the lack of equal treatment with respect to the other clubs" involved in the scandal.

A ruling on July 14 by the Italian soccer federation stripped Juventus of its last two Serie A titles and relegated the Turin powerhouse to the second division.

An appeals court on July 25 cut Juve's point penalty from 30 to 17.

Lazio and Fiorentina, two other clubs implicated in the scandal, were readmitted to Serie A by the appeals court.

An attempt at arbitration last week also failed to reduce Juventus' sentence.

The Tar of Lazio is slated to convene on Sept. 6. If the July 25 decisions are suspended or annulled, the start of the Serie A and B seasons on Sept. 9-10 could be delayed.
